The American Cinematheque Presents an exciting program for 2018!

Willem Dafoe In Person! THE FLORIDA PROJECT & SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE Friday, January 12, 2018 – 7:30 PM EGYPTIAN THEATRE 6712 Hollywood Blvd., LA 90028 Willem Dafoe In Person! Willem Dafoe Double Feature! In THE FLORIDA PROJECT, he plays the gruff but lovable manager of a low-rent hotel bordering Disneyworld; in the fictionalized SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE, he plays a real-life bloodsucker hired to star in Murnau’s silent classic NOSFERATU. Discussion between films with Willem Dafoe. DETAILS THE ENDLESS POETRY OF ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY January 13 – 20, 2018 When New York filmmaker Jonas Mekas programmed an eccentric Western called EL TOPO in a 1970 avant-garde film festival, an original new voice in international cinema was introduced. A unique blend of mysticism, violence and heavily symbolic images, EL TOPO captivated the counterculture and announced its director, Alejandro Jodorowsky, as a filmmaker of immense talent and vision. More ambitious and audacious epics followed – THE HOLY MOUNTAIN and SANTA SANGRE not only delivered on the promise of Jodorowsky’s breakthrough but exceeded all the high expectations EL TOPO generated. Jodorowsky’s life has been as colorful as his films: Born in 1929 in a small town in Chile, he abandoned his authoritarian upbringing in the 1940s to seek the cosmopolitan culture of Santiago, where he met some of the leading lights of 20th-century Hispanic literature. These experiences inspired a lifelong quest for beauty, inner truth and spiritual awareness – along with Jodorowsky’s first new films in more than 20 years. The autobiographical THE DANCE OF REALITY and ENDLESS POETRY both blend Jodorowsky’s personal history with metaphor and mythology, and are strikingly told through his unique surreal and psychedelic visual language. Jodorowsky’s artistic language is not confined to film; his graphic art is the focus of the new exhibit “Alchemical Love,” which opens at the Blum & Poe Gallery in Los Angeles on January 16. Created in collaboration with spouse Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky, its bold imagery further explores the boundless creativity that midnight movie fans have enjoyed for decades. Series compiled by Gwen Deglise and Grant Moninger. Program notes by Jim Hemphill and John Hagelston.  DETAILS EL TOPO & FANDO AND LIS Saturday, January 13, 2018 – 7:30 PM Alejandro Jodorowsky Double Feature! In EL TOPO (1970), A mysterious man (played by Jodorowsky) rides through the desert on a mission of vengeance and spiritual rebirth. FANDO AND LIS (1968) is the director’s debut feature, a stylish and playful tale of a doomed young couple. DETAILS THE HOLY MOUNTAIN & SANTA SANGRE Sunday, January 14, 2018 – 7:30 PM This event is now sold out online. There will be a standby line that begins 90 minutes prior to showtime. For details on the book signing please click on “details” below. THE HOLY MOUNTAIN tells the story of another spiritual quest as a thief travels to the titular mount to find a group of alleged “immortals.” Followed by a free bonus screening of SANTA SANGRE, a glorious fever dream of a thriller.Discussion after THE HOLY MOUNTAIN with director Alejandro Jodorowsky, who will sign a selection of his books beginning at 6:30 PM. DETAILS THE DANCE OF REALITY & ENDLESS POETRY Saturday, January 20, 2018 – 7:30 PM EGYPTIAN THEATRE (Spieleberg) 6712 Hollywood Blvd., LA 90028 This event is sold out.

Telluride Ski Resort To Host Summer Wellness Retreat Series In 2018

Telluride Ski Resort To Host Summer Wellness Retreat Series In 2018

The Live Longer Retreat Telluride will feature groundbreaking wellness initiatives Is it possible to change your wellness lifestyle forever in one week? The short and sweet answer from Telluride is ‘yes.’ Throughout this summer, Telluride Ski Resort and The Peaks Resort & Spa will host a series of wellness retreats designed to provide attendees with cutting-edge knowledge and tools to revolutionize your lifestyle, and even preventing or reducing age-related ailments like dementia, heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and obesity. The goal? To ultimately prolong your life and overall happiness. Led by internationally-renowned internist and gastroenterologist Dr. Alan Safdi, the Live Longer Retreat program boasts a prestigious team of wellness, nutrition, bodyworks and fitness experts. The lineup of physician-run initiatives will include personalized one-on-one coaching and consultation with physical trainers and dietitians. “These retreats are simply unlike anything being offered out there right now. And it’s easy to make that claim, because there just isn’t,” Dr. Safdi said. “We provide the kind of meaningful education you should have gotten in school. Because the truth is, there is no “one thing” that is the ultimate answer for wellness. It’s a variety of components—eating right, exercising right, understanding how your body works, along with the kinds of questions you should be asking the doctor and how to make sense of all the jargon and misleading information out there in the world.” In addition, Dr. Safdi will head daily educational lectures, hikes and activities—along with pre-retreat private meetings to fully customize an individual’s needs for the retreat, and post-retreat follow ups with Dr. Safdi himself. “One of the important aspects of these retreats is how we dissect the epidemiology of wellness in the daily lectures,” Dr. Safdi said. “Is there proof in the longevity of lifespan through lifestyle change? We have that proof. Based on the different type of populations that we’ll be discussing, whether it’s the Seventh-day Adventists or populations in Sardinia or Okinawa, we study their behaviors to find the right methods to emulate for your lifestyle change. It’s fascinating stuff, and I’m still learning something new everyday.” Attendees will also enjoy luxurious accommodations at The Peaks Resort & Spa in Telluride, which is included in the cost, along with interactive meals and cooking demos including 6 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 4 dinners. Limited to only 15 attendees per retreat, the innovative program is scheduled throughout the summer, starting on June 3-9, then July 15-21, Aug. 19-25, and Sept. 23-29. Dr. Alan Safdi is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He is a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology, was elected President of the Ohio Gastroenterology Society in 2013 and is on the board of the Digestive Diseases National Coalition. He co-founded and served as President of the Ohio Gastroenterology and Liver Institute and the Consultants for Clinical Research. He served Deaconess Hospital on its Executive Committee and as Chairman of the subsection of Gastroenterology for over 20 years. “The toughest thing to get across is how enjoyable this really is,” Dr. Safdi said. “It’s eye-opening. The whole week is action-packed with a ton of fun activities to dive into, all of which is easy enough to let you continue doing long after you’ve left the retreat.” For more info visit The Peaks...

Vetusta Morla “Punto Sin Retorno”

Posted by on 9:00 am in Culture, Music | 0 comments

Vetusta Morla “Punto Sin Retorno”

Spanish alt-rock band Vetusta Morla releases the music video for “Punto Sin Retorno” from its latest album Mismo Sitio, Distinto Lugar. It’s a unique video, featuring a creatively reimagined version of the song that portrays the band’s six members performing it live-in-studio. This session was filmed in Berlin’s Hansa Studios, where in April 2017 the group recorded its latest album alongside the musician and producer Carles “Campi” Campón. In a statement, Vetusta Morla offered other details about this audiovisual document: “During our two weeks in Berlin, our goal was not to sound like ‘six people making music in the same room.’ To that end, we decided to experiment and revisit songs in a way that we hadn’t before. When the Hansa sessions were about to end, we got together with the video team to create several takes of ‘Punto Sin Retorno’ in a different format from the album version, including one with an earlier draft of the lyrics. It came together instantaneously and organically, it was captured on video in a way that made use of the studio’s acoustic strengths, our performance and the chemistry we create by making music in close quarters.” “Punto Sin Retorno” is about a discrete moment that many of us have experienced: when we realize that we’ve embarked on a path where there’s no turning back, and we must take the hand of the person by our side to continue forward. Knowing that we don’t have enough fuel to turn around, we follow our intuition, carried along by a force stronger than our will. It’s a force that doesn’t follow maps, but has an infallible compass that takes us beyond our own horizons. This is the fourth music video released from Mismo Sitio, Distinto Lugar. The first was Te lo Digo a Ti (I Tell You), directed by Nacho Vigalondo, who also co-starred alongside Lolita Flores and Nacho Vegas. The second video was “Deséame Suerte” (Wish Me Luck), directed by Fernando Franco, who has frequently worked with the band. The third video was “El Discurso del Rey” (The King’s Speech), which premiered on Christmas Eve. It was produced by the Cuadra Picha Audiovisual Collective and scripted by “El Mundo Today”. This year, Vetusta Morla will take its Mismo Sitio, Distinto Lugar Tour to 17 cities in eight countries. During Vetusta Morla’s tour in support of its previous album La Deriva (2014), the band played for over 300,000 fans in 10 countries.
