Dear Shaded Viewers,
I attended the opening of Hors Piste with Jonathan Caouette and Marie Losier, if you did not here is the plan for January 19th in the presence of Jonathan Caouette and Marie Losier:
"Sunday, January the 19th, 2014 in Paris, for a ten year anniversary screening of my first film from 2004, Tarnation, and Marie's film from 2011, The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye, along with many other surprises including Marie's new film on Legendary Alan Vega (From the band Suicide). Also there will be premiers of new films by me and Marie , outtakes from our films and extensive discussions about our work. The address is 19 Rue Beaubourge, Paris."
3:00 PM Alan Vega : Just a million dreams (2013) Portrait of the mythical Electro Post Punk and his family in New York City.
The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye (2011)
An intimate, affecting portrait of the life and work of ground-breaking performance artist and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) and his other half and collaborator, Lady Jaye, centered around the daring sexual transformations the pair underwent for their “Pandrogyne” project.
Two new surprise short films by Jonathan Caouette.
Praised as “ a film of remarkable power” by esteemed film critic Roger Ebert, Jonathan Caouette's Tarnation is a documentary on growing up with a mother with schizophrenia and has earned huge acclaim since it's release in 2004. Culled together from 20 years of snapshots, answering machine messages, video diaries, super 8 home movies, snippets of 1970's and 1980's pop culture and early short films and more, to create an epic portrait of an American family torn apart by disfunction and reunited through the power of love. This riveting one-of-a-kind documentary is being screened for a special 10 year anniversary of the films release.
8:00 PM Solo Show/Master class "hanging around with Marie and Jonathan" Both directors will be discussing their work and showing various outtakes from films, works in progress and a few surprises too;)
