This summer, the Clockshop presents a series of films, My Atlas, curated by Julia Meltzer, Sasha Archibald and Courtney Stephens. On Thursday July 10th at 7:30PM, outside in the Elysian courtyard, at 2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, CA 90039, the series begins with the film Morvern Callar (2002) introduced by Tisa Bryant.
This is a rare and special opportunity to see some great films shown outdoors. The theme of the series is women travelers, and each film is introduced by a speaker who will talk about travel and self-discovery. From the website –
My Atlas is a summer event series that pairs films with live travelogues to explore the varied experiences of women travelers. Women take to the road for reasons of escape and pleasure, ambition and aimlessness, privileged choice and coercion. Feature films by male and female directors, spanning sixty years of cinema history, will focus on atypical representations of the female traveler in narrative cinema—as divorcees, drug mules, exiles, and drifters. Each film screening will be preceded by a speaker who will recount a specific travel story and/or discuss travel as a mode of self-understanding.
All films at 7:30PM; $10 (students $7) available on the the website.
