THE ART OF SOUND, WOW! TED JOANS LIVES!, and ALL ME: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert
FRIDAY, APRIL 19
4:00 p.m.    FILMS ABOUT CREATIVITY

THE ART OF SOUND (USA, 2013; 4 min. 30 sec.) Directed by Greg Pitts, who will be present for the screening. Seattle premiere.

The Art of Sound explores the manner in which sound resonates. It exemplifies fusion of art with waves of sound. There's nothing else like it. Not only is sound its own art form, but the art makes sound.

WOW! TED JOANS LIVES! (USA, 2012; 30 min.) Directed by Tom Knoff and Kurt Hemmer.

Wow! Ted Joans Lives! is a visual and aural collage by Kurt Hemmer and Tom Knoff examining the life and works of the legendary, tri-continental poet Ted Joans, who was born in Cairo, Illinois on 4 July 1928 and went on to become one of the significant poets of his generation performing his work in the United States, Europe, and Africa.  Joans believed that surrealism helped him deal with the pains of racism. He started his artistic endeavors as a painter and collagist, and some rare examples of his work are presented here along with the poems he blew with the encouragement of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Langston Hughes. Images of Joans's heroes, like Charlie Parker and AndrĂ© Breton (who said that Joans was the only African-American surrealist he had ever met), are accompanied with the poems Joans dedicated to them. The film has the sound of jazz and the flavor of surrealism. As Ted Joans declared, "Jazz is my religion and Surrealism is my point of view."

ALL ME: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert  (USA, 2011; 1 hr 14 min) Directed by Vivian Ducat. Seattle premiere.

All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert chronicles the journey of Winfred Rembert, an African American artist who recently had a retrospective in a top-tier Madison Avenue gallery who earlier in his life had served seven years on a chain gang in Georgia. His brightly colored paintings which are executed on leather canvases which Rembert also tools, a technique he learned in prison, describe life in the Jim Crow south in the 1950's and 60's. A native of Georgia, Rembert, now lives with his wife and eight children in a rough neighborhood in New Haven but also operates in the social universe of well-off white collectors in Connecticut who buy his work. The film traces his life and contextualizes the era it describes.
