SAT. 3/10: ADAM CURTIS’ "ALL WATCHED OVER BY MACHINES OF LOVING GRACE"
On Saturday March 10, ATA Gallery’s flagship exhibition series, Other Cinema, presents the frequently invoked but all too rarely screened work of UK wünderkind Adam Curtis. Curtis’ obsessive collage-essays usher in a fascinating new fold in the documentary tradition. Though criticized by orthodox fact-finders, Curtis’ works indisputably introduce a speculative platform that encourages the most audacious sort of associative thinking—some would say conspiratorial—that’s a true pleasure to behold.
Never before projected in SF, we unveil the entire 2011 triptych All Watched Over.... The first of three hour-long episodes, Love and Power features a riveting Mike Wallace interview with Ayn Rand, whose libertarian philosophy serves as the foil for Curtis’ argument. Balance of Nature and Monkey in the Machine follow, with short interstitial breathers. Free coffee, plain or spiked!
Doors open 8:00 pm, Show at 8:30.
