A short documentary about
A Magic World!



'Abracadabra says the conjurer.. 
And on the instant quite impossible things happen.
He waves a wand and objects vanish,
come to life and are set in motion..'

'This is Karel Zeman..
Georges Melies successor and heir.
Animated drawings and figures long ago laid their spell on him
and he's still a captive in the kingdom of make believe..'

The Magic World of Karel Zeman!

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 26th  7-10pm

borrowed printing plates that date from the late 1800’s to the late 1950’s from magician and magic historian Mike Caveney which she printed on an old letterpress at the University of Redlands. The plates have not seen ink and paper in decades. The plates are mainly drawings of tricks and apparatus used in advertisements and of magicians who would pack them in a trunk and travel with them from town to town. Each time the magician would enter a new town the magicians’ assistant would carry the plates over to the local newspaper along with information about the show s/he would be performing. The plates and information would then be printed in the paper with the hope of gaining audience members for the shows.

Tuesday

a story about a dilapidated bath house



  
 ‘TUVALU’ 
                                           { Chulpan Khamatova as Eva }

 One of our favorite bath house films! It's a 1999 
experimental film from Germany directed by Veit Helmer.  
                                                   {Denis Lavant as Anton }

The style evokes early 20th century silent movies and motifs commonly found in German expressionism. The sparse dialog is presented in a mix of European languages. It's a story about keeping a dilapidated 
bathhouse a float in the midst of a desolate landscape.. 

                                                  { an action scene! }

Thursday
