Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 264: Fri Sep 21

CINEMA AS A SUBVERSIVE ART: An All-Night Filmic Wake for Amos Vogel
The Cinema Museum, Kennington. 11pm-7.30am

This is film programming at its very best, and possibly the highlight of the Scala Beyond season, a tribute to one of radical cinema's great pioneers, Amos Vogel.

Here is the introduction to tonight's event: As part of the nationwide Scala Beyond season, Little Joe is teaming up with LUX, the international arts agency and artists’ moving image archive, to commemorate and celebrate the life and legacy of Amos Vogel, founder of the legendary film society Cinema 16 and author of the indispensible guide ‘Film as a Subversive Art’, who passed away in April 2012. 

In tribute to a true champion of radical cinema, we will present selected programmes of films from Vogel's book throughout the night at the Cinema Museum, including works by Kenneth Anger,Maya Deren, Dusan Makavejev, Paul Sharits, Carolee Schneemann and Stan Brakhage, many screening from original 35mm and 16mm prints.
