Spotlight on a Brick Wall
Director: Alee Peoples & Mike Stoltz
Saturday Mar 25th
A performance film that navigates expectations of both the audience and the makers. A series of false starts. Dub treatment on the laugh track
Alee Peoples (born 1981, Oklahoma City) maintains a varied artistic practice that involves screen-printing, sewing, sculpture and film.Currently living in Los Angeles, she has taught youth classes at Echo Park Film Center and organized a 13-date film tour in the spring of 2014. Peoples has shown her films at numerous U.S. film festivals and atart spaces in Tokyo, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.She is inspired by pedestrian histories, pop song lyrics and invested in the hand-made.
Mike Stoltz is a Los Angeles-based artist whose practice is dictated by process, working directly with the tools of cinema (film, video, sound, special effects, and projection) to explore boundaries of space, time, memory, and the medium itself. Through his work there is an examination of the constant and the variable; a concrete wall begins to spin through the sky, performers place the camera between their bodies, nature overtakes the man-made, and history begins to fold in on itself.
