Event

Ephraim Asili: Traversing Historic Time
Los Angeles Filmforum is thrilled to welcome New York-based filmmaker Ephraim Asili for his first solo show in Los Angeles. This program includes the Los Angeles premieres of Many Thousands Gone (2015), Forged Ways (2011) and Points on a Space Age (2009).

Beautifully filmed on location in Ghana, Brazil and Ethiopia as well as in Philadelphia and Harlem, Asili's complex, poetic documentaries fuse travelogue to archival investigation in order to explore how history and memory bear on the present  shaping the navigation and inhabitation of places.

Ephraim Asili is an African-American Artist, Filmmaker, D.J, Radio host, and traveler. Inspired by his day-to-day wanderings Asili creates art that situates itself as a series of meditations on everyday experience and media culture. Through audio-visual examinations of societal iconography identity, geography, and architecture Asili strives to present a personal vision. The results are perhaps best described as an amalgam of pop, African-American and "moving image" culture filtered through an acute sense of rhythmic improvisation and compositional awareness.

Ephraim Asili currently serves as Technical Director for the Film and Electronic Arts Department at Bard College and hosts a radio show on WGXC 90.7 FM Hudson, New York. His films have screened at venues including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Wavelengths, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
