The Hammer Museum presents a two-night screening of Shoah (1985) on Monday, March 26 at 7pm and Tuesday, March 27 at 7pm in the Billy Wilder Theater.

Shoah, Claude Lanzmann’s monumental epic on the Holocaust, features interviews with survivors, bystanders, and perpetrators in 14 countries. The film does not contain any historical footage but rather features interviews that seek to remember the Jewish tragedy and revisits places where the crimes took place.

(1985, Dir. Claude Lanzmann, First Era: 273 min. Second Era: 230 min. total: 503 min.)

An extraordinary film...One of the noblest ever made. It is not a documentary, not journalism, not propaganda, not political. It is an act of witness. —Roger Ebert

Shoah is one of the greatest documentaries in the history of the cinema…you must see it. —New York Magazine

In conjunction with the exhibition Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone, 1955–1972.
First Era, MON MAR 26, 7PM

Friday Night Frights @ CINEFAMILY - Tonight! Dario Argentos 'Phenomena, aka Creepers'.

One of Dario Argento's creepiest classics!

Coming hot on the heels of his shock classics Deep Red and Suspiria, Italian horror maestro Dario Argento was at the height of his powers in the early ‘80s — and Phenomena, aka Creepers, plays as both a sort of greatest-hits package of the director’s best impulses and fetishes, and a brain-busting head-spinner that stands mightily on its own. A very young Jennifer Connelly stars as a psychic ingenue (with a love of creepy-crawly insects) who’s menaced by a giallo-style killer at a Swiss Academy for girls. Throw in a a razor-wielding chimp(!), a typically nutty Donald Pleasance, a stellar soundtrack featuring Iron Maiden, Motorhead and (of course) the inimitable Goblin — and you have one of the best psychotronic film freakouts of the era. Tonight, Cinefamily we’ll be screening Creepers, the original American release cut — but have no fear, as it’s considered by many to be the preferred, faster-paced version of the film. So come get your creep on with this ultra-rare 35mm screening of one of Argento’s creepiest classics!

Dir. Dario Argento, 1985, 35mm, 82 min.

@ MICHAEL KOHN GALLERY - Camille Rose Garcia: Snow White The Complete Works on Paper - Opening and book signing: March 15th, 6-8p.

Camille Rose Garcia: Snow White The Complete Works on Paper

March 15 - April 14, 2012
Opening and book signing: March 15th, 6-8pm

Michael Kohn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of original watercolor paintings by Camille Rose Garcia. These beautifully intricate paintings were created for the illustrated book of the Grimm Brothers' classic fairy tale, Snow White (Published by Harper Design, February 28, 2012). Her previous illustrated book was a New York Times Bestseller and was described as "Brilliant" by New York Magazine.

Camille Rose Garcia's wholly original interpretation of the classic tale of Snow White is underscored by her dark and whimsical style. With a stylistic nod to the watercolored animation backrounds of early Disney movies, Garcia references the golden age of early animation as well as vintage German fairy tale books. Garcia adds back the darker elements present in the original Brothers Grimm text, inverting the Disneyesque paradigm of simplistic happy endings and everlasting halcyon days into something closer to the original macabre German folktale.

These incredible paintings will be on view at the Michael Kohn Gallery for a period coinciding with the release of the first two major Hollywood films based off the same tale of Snow White.

The illustrated book will be available at the gallery, and Garcia will be present for signing during the opening reception.

Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era. Her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias. Creative influences include Phillip K. Dick, William Burroughs, Henry Darger, and Walt Disney, as well as politically aware bands like The Clash and Dead Kennedys.

Garcia received a Masters of Fine Arts from The University of California, Davis. A solo mid career survey of her work was shown at the San Jose Museum of Art in May 2007.

Three books of her work have been published, her children’s book, The Magic Bottle, 2006, published by Fantagraphics Books, The Saddest Place on Earth, 2005, published by Last Gasp Publishing and Grand Central Press, and Tragic Kingdom, 2007, published by Last Gasp Press and The San Jose Museum of Art.

Garcia’s work has been featured in Flaunt Magazine, Nylon, Paper Magazine, Modern Painters, Art Prostitute, Juxtapoz Magazine and The Los Angeles Times. Her art has been exhibited in Spain, Germany, France, and Italy, as well as numerous cities in the United States. She currently lives in Northern California.


An Evening with Rob Zabrecky @ The Trepany House - *LAST SHOW OF THE SEASON*

Rob Zabrecky presents a one-man variety show quite unlike any other. After several recent sold-out performances, Zabrecky's show returns with a revised program featuring highlights from his award-nominated Magic Castle act, song & dance, conversations with outmoded satellites, audience interaction, absurdist parapsychology, and more.

"Rob Zabrecky - the name means 'Abracadabra,' sideways" -LA Weekly

"Zabrecky's art often involves opening a door on the mysterious and the bizarre and walking people through it. These new shows, at The Steve Allen Theater, allow Zabrecky to combine his many talents - acting, music, magic and dance - into one highly entertaining bundle with a distinct point of view." - LA Times

"A fascinating and entertaining unique persona. One cannot help but wonder, however, just how much of the strange fellow on stage is the real Rob and how much is acted by design." - Magic Magazine

With Very Special Guests: Derek DelGaudio & Helder Guimaraes, Tina Lenert, and the Goodnight Ladies (Liberty Larsen & Shayne Eastin).
