About The Explicit Celluloid Body

The Film-Makers’ Cooperative presents selections from its 50-year history that shatter both societal and cinematic convention through their celluloid explorations of love, sexuality, and bodily taboo. This 16mm program features works by seminal avant-garde filmmakers including Jack Smith, Carolee Schneemann, Paul Sharits, Kurt Kren, and Martha Colburn. The presentation culminates with Barbara Rubin’s mythic double-projection film, Christmas on Earth, which shocked and mesmerized audiences in 1966 when it first screened as part of a Warhol/Velvet Underground show. Contains mature content. (16mm presentation)

Director MM Serra is scheduled to be present.
