Last night @ Cinefamily, Family Books brought out artist/designer/filmmaker Mike Mills, who's directed music videos for Sonic Youth, Yoko Ono, Beastie Boys, Blonde Redhead and Ol' Dirty Bastard, as well as the film Thumbsucker, and the documentary Does Your Soul Have a Cold? And don’t forget about Deformer (about artist/skater Ed Templeton).
Medium is apparently less important to Mills' work than an encompassing vision that permeates all his diverse projects. Whether it's a television commercial, a watercolor painting, or a fabric design, everything Mills concocts is suffused by his current emotional and spiritual disposition. Last night Mike choose to show and share his thoughts about István Szabó's Lovefilm, a lesser-known 1970 masterpiece from the Czech New Wave.
