100 MULES WALKING THE LOS ANGELES AQUEDUCT Screening
Screening of 100 MULES WALKING THE LOS ANGELES AQUEDUCT followed by a Q&A with artist Lauren Bon
Date: Thursday, Nov. 5th
Location: Vidiots Annex
Vidiots Foundation presents a screening on the 102-year anniversary of the opening of the Los Angeles Aqueduct with the documentary "100 Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct," that follows a journey with a string of one hundred mules that drew a line between Los Angeles and a source of its water in the Eastern Sierra.
The one-month meditation was undertaken by Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio to commemorate the centenary of the opening of the Los Angeles Aqueduct on Nov. 5th, 2013.
Mules were part of the labor force that made building the aqueduct possible. This artist action paid homage to the quiet dignity of the mule and the patient pace of its progress across the western epic landscape.
Doors will open at 7:30 PM and screening will begin at 8:00 PM.
All proceeds go towards the Vidiots Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the cinematic and media arts in the form of preserving and protecting our collection of over 50,000 rare and classic VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray titles.
