Tomorrow evening is the season opening night of Flaherty NYC at the Anthology Archives. I’m really into this year’s theme–Global Revolt–and the line up of screenings looks really exciting. I can’t make tomorrow’s event but thought I’d post it for people in NYC or passing through.
Tuesday, October 1, 7:00pm @ Anthology Film Archives
Ben Morea, Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri will be present for a post screening discussion with Flaherty NYC Programmers Sherry Millner and Ernie Larsen. Join us after the show for happy hour prices on beer and cocktails at The Scratcher (209 E. 5th St.), where we invite the conversation to continue in a more relaxed environment.
The previously unquenchable spirit of the modernist avant-garde seems to have evaporated at almost the same moment as anti-authoritarian, autonomist, and anarchist movements re-surfaced in the 21st century. These films, which explore the unmistakable correspondence between refuse and refusal, should tell us a thing or two about this wholly unpredicted emergence.
