Silk Tatters

Two by Gina Telaroli, and Brigadoon

Part of First Look 2015
Saturday, January 17, 2015, 2:00 p.m.

With Gina Telaroli in person

Filmmaker, archivist, and cinephile extraordinaire Gina Telaroli makes works that artistically examine her love of cinema. Silk Tatters (U.S., 2014, 17 mins. World premiere) is a cine-essay that explores holding onto the past as a way to embrace the future, inspired by Vincente Minnelli’s Brigadoon. In Starting Sketches #7 (U.S., 2014, 4 mins. World premiere) Jennifer Jones meets Joan Crawford in a haze of criss-crossing black and white as the two dance out their social-class dreams and nightmares.

Followed by a screening of Brigadoon (Dir. Vincente Minnelli, 1955, 102 mins. 35mm. With Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, Cyd Charisse), a haunting, enchanting musical about a magical Scottish village that rises out of the mist every hundred years for only a day.

Free admission. Tickets will be given out on the day of the screening on a first-come, first-served basis. Members (Film Lover level and above) may reserve tickets by emailing [email protected].
