VideoSonics: LAST LIZARD (fka Dirty Beaches) VS News From Home—A Meditation on Chantal Akerman's 1977 Masterwork
611 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, California 90036
From the Cinefamily website:
Here, a young Akerman, newly relocated from Belgium to New York City, shares her persistent, thoughtful gaze with the viewer, her lense affixing itself to the movements of the great metropolis, stepping back and leaving a space for contemplation. For this special one-night “collaboration,” Last Lizard takes that place, interpreting and responding to Akerman’s images in a unique musical performance.
In Hungtai’s words, “Our narrative is never definitive, trapped between origin and destination, anchored by neither. But between point A and B lies a third vantage point, perhaps expressed by the image of the receding skyline in the finale of the film.”
