Cinema 16

Interview w/ Amos Vogel on the original Cinema 16

In the era of silent film, live music enhanced the moving picture and brought communities together with a visceral, interactive audio-visual experience. Today, when the film experience has been reduced to the tiny screens of our laptops and ipods, oftentimes experienced alone, Cinema 16 offers a revival of community.
Named after the New York-based avant-garde film society in 1947 and inspired by Maya Deren's Greenwich Village exhibition of experimental films, Cinema 16 pairs edgy contemporary musical artists with vintage films, curated and produced by photographer/curator Molly Surno. For over a year now, the passionate Surno has lovingly programmed these semi-monthly screenings and performances, melding the worlds of art, film and music.-[press release]

Mick Jagger's soundtrack work on Invocation is amazing.

Sara is so good. I will be there for a few of these shows.

She needs to put out more recorded work. Her live stuff is great, she definitely knows what she's doing.

Following my investigation, thousands of persons on our planet receive the loans from good creditors. So, there's good chances to get a collateral loan in any country.

I absolutely love Sarah Lipstate's work, she deserves way more recognition than she gets. Definitely one of the more under appreciated artists of my time.
