In recent years, she has begun producing and directing, and runs the Gonzoriffic Department for Effed Up French Films.


GUEST SPEAKER: RICHARD NEUPERT

SATURDAY MAY 19 @ 4-6p

UGA Film Professor and AFAI Board Member Richard Neupert will host a happy hour presentation: CELEBRATING CINEMATIC HISTORY: THE LUMIERE BROTHERS AND THE BIRTH OF CINEMA. Come enjoy a cocktail and learn about the early beginnings of motion pictures! 

In 1895, Louis and Auguste Lumière projected the first motion pictures in France. Then they sent camera operators around the globe to make and show films. Some critics even claim that Louis Lumière was equivalent to the great Impressionist painters, experimenting with light, but adding movement. These earliest motion pictures are still among the most striking films the world has ever known. This talk presents a number of Lumière’s most beautiful 50-second movies made in Europe, Africa, North America, and Asia. Lumière films truly “showed the world to the world” and launched a whole new art form.


BAD MOVIE NIGHT: THE BLACK CRYSTAL

TUESDAY MAY 29 @ 8:30p

Celebrating 8 years of the very worst that cinema has to offer! This month, after driving his Trans Am straight into the heart of backwoods Arizona cult country, Will finds himself in possession of a much-desired power crystal, eating roast beef sandwiches with a witch, and getting beaten to a pulp by immortal rednecks in THE BLACK CRYSTAL.
