Whats Left Behind: The Films of Tony Gault, Roger Beebe, and Elizabeth Henry.
Saturday February 18, 2017, 7:30 pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Whats Left Behind: The Films of Tony Gault, Roger Beebe, and Elizabeth Henry.
At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90028

Filmmakers Tony Gault, Roger Beebe, and Elizabeth Henry in person!

On the eve of the 9th edition of the Festival of (In)appropriation, Los Angeles Filmforum is thrilled to present this intimate prelude, featuring works by three stalwarts of the found-footage filmmaking universe. Orbiting at the upper reaches of the avant-docu-sphere, the works of Tony Gault, Roger Beebe, and Elizabeth Henry offer remarkable explorations of creation and destruction, desire and loss, land and spirit. By turns haunting, humorous, and hallucinatory, their films are as much about the world we so often see without knowing, as they are about the world we can only know by seeing it through cinema. For Filmforum, these longtime pals on the experimental/documentary circuit (all former standouts of Festivals of (In)appropriation past) have joined forces to present this retrospective of works both new and old, shot on Super8, 16mm, and HD, or culled from the worlds voluminous archive of found footage.

Roger Beebe is a filmmaker whose work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple projector performances that explore the world of found images and the "found" landscapes of late capitalism. He has screened his films at such unlikely venues as the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square and McMurdo Station in Antarctica as well as more likely ones including Sundance, the Museum of Modern Art,  Anthology Film Archives and Los Angeles Filmforum. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Art at the Ohio State University.

Tony Gaults experimental and documentary films have screened at festivals around the world including Sundance, Tribeca, NY Underground, Montreal Intl, Chicago Underground, SF Intl, and have won awards at Black Maria, Ann Arbor, Big Muddy and New Orleans.  He is currently working on a film about language and how it shapes our perception of reality.

Elizabeth Henry is a Teaching Professor at the University of Denver.  Working largely in experimental and documentary production, her films have screened at the Denver International Film Festival, Black Maria,  Mill Valley Film Festival, New York Underground, Chicago Underground, Three Rivers, Big Sky Documentary, Festival of (In)Appropriation, and Anthology Film Archives.
