Organizer/AuthorCraig Baldwin
Having moved from the East Bay to LA, Othercinema soul-mate Christian Divine was positioned to grasp Holllywood product as an object of serious Cultural Study. Divine deconstructed Preminger's Skidoo at his last OC outing; tonight's lecture-demo digs up the dead bodies around several infamous youth films, all made in 1970, which he has grouped under the rubric "Protest-ploitation": Ice, Zabriskie Point, The Revolutionary, Getting Straight, Revolutions Per Minute, The Strawberry Statement, and The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart. His contextualization of this curious faux-political subgenre sheds light on the needs of the industry to appropriate the politics of the day. Christian's anecdotes and scintillating analysis is followed by a complete 16mm screening of David Greene's mind-blowing psychedelic melodrama, The People Next Door!
