Anthology Film Archives: A meaningful time to support Anthology... | June 28th
Jonas Mekas, As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally
I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty, 2000, 16mm.
Dear friends of Anthology,
It has been a momentous year here at Anthology. With all this organization has achieved – the many films screened, the many works restored and preserved – we also suffered the loss of our dear friend and mentor, AFA’s founder Jonas Mekas.
As we approach the end of our fiscal year on June 30th, we hope you’ll spare a moment to reflect on what Anthology is and share in Jonas’s vision for this organization, for cinema, and for life.
This deadline, as we close the book on this fiscal year, is a meaningful moment for our staff to consider all that Jonas had achieved and all he anticipated for this institution. Your tax-deductible gift this weekend allows us to continue to spotlight the unseen, highlight the historically significant, and reveal remarkable feats of the cinematic form, and allows you to help contribute to this vision.
Whether you’ve attended film programs, joined as a member, or kept tabs on us from elsewhere, we thank you for your continued support of all that we do here at Anthology Film Archives!
Best wishes for a peaceful & rewarding summer, John Mhiripiri and the entire staff at Anthology

Anthology Film Archives: Prison Images | New York | June 26th
Christine Choy & Cynthia Maurizio INSIDE WOMEN INSIDE (1978, 28 min, 16mm-to-digital)
PRISON IMAGES: INCARCERATION AND THE CINEMA - Art by Inmates | July 8 til 25
Mainstream movies inform much of what we understand about prisons, and while most commercially-driven films provide us with an ideology meant to naturalize the prison system, there are others that persist in challenging received notions about the usefulness and effectiveness of punishment. Spanning from the 1950s to today, this series brings together a broad selection of films, with each reflecting different aesthetic and critical relationships to the prison institution: from provocative, activist documentaries to inmate-made films, from commercial exploitation cinema to classic escape dramas, and more.
From July 18-26 we'll present a follow-up series focusing more specifically on films made by or with inmates, as well as documentaries that explore similar programs intended to foster the creation of theater, music, art, and literature by inmates. Curated in collaboration with Evelyn Emile. more

In Denmark, the most progressive highway sign (3x3 m) was set up in April at the E20 exit by Odense. It is the Danish artist Jens Galschiøt who has designed the sign, which also points towards his gallery. On the sign, everyone is exposed to the artistic razor: China's aempt to erase the massacre of their own students in 1989, the Catholic Church's absurd contracepon ban, the US's denial of climate change, the extreme double standards and arrogance of the Western world, the retreat of the Europeans from humanism, men and women’s roles in a queer time, and the powerlessness of the climate negotiations. The artist says: "I am happy to live in a country where one can see the value in art about social criticism, as well as have it on an official Danish highway, and on the hometown of Danish poet Hans Christians Andersen also, who even used his adventures to put focus on the absurdity of society. Art must be used to create new insights into the world, and that is the kind of art that is on the sign”. The signage cost about 50.000 euros. Galschiøt has got them with the help of art crowdfunding, for which he made a series of unique sculptures that were sold specifically to finance the signage. Within 14 days the sculptures were sold and the signage paid. more

HUMAN RIGHTS? #CLIMA – Edizione 2019 | UNRIC Agenda 2030 says about the climate change: “Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
Affordable, scalable solutions are now available to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy.
To strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris, which went into force in November of 2016. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees centigrade. As of April 2018, 175 parties had ratified the Paris Agreement and 10 developing countries had submitted their first iteration of their national adaptation plans for responding to climate change.”
Anthology Film Archives: In Dialogue: Werner Herzog | New York | April 17th
GOD'S ANGRY MAN
DOCUMENTARY IN DIALOGUE: WERNER HERZOG | April 18-28
Werner Herzog’s prominence within the realm of nonfiction cinema has grown in recent years, both due to the films themselves and to his promotion of the idea of an “ecstatic truth” that hinges on the director’s manipulation of reality. At the same time Herzog has gained attention by critiquing other, more passive approaches, such as Direct Cinema.
Nevertheless, it is not easy to say what defines a Herzog documentary, aside from the presence of his almost legendary voice and his interest in outsiders who are often confronted with extraordinary circumstances. Guest curated by Alejandro Bachmann and Michelle Koch – the editors of a recent German-language book on Herzog’s documentaries – this film program attempts to illuminate this unique body of work by pairing particular Herzog films with works by other filmmakers that focus on similar topics, deal with comparable material, or employ related approaches. This series is co-presented by the Goethe-Institut New York. ►read more

HEIDE HATRY: Heart Attack Exhibitions in Canada, Peru ... | New York | April 14th
Before I inform you about upcoming exhibitions, I'd like to share something I just learned, which, though I hope you won’t need it, could prove valuable:
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK:
If you suddenly start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to extend out into your arm and up into your jaw, you might have only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
You can help yourself by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously (a deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.)
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart starts beating normally again. (Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain its normal rhythm. That way you might make it to the hospital)
Tell as many other people as you can about this, as it may just be possible to save a life. ►read more
Hi, this account is now hacked! Renew your pswd right away!
You do not know anything about me and you may be probably wanting to know why you're receiving this message, is it right?
I am ahacker who burstyour email boxand all devicesa few months ago.
It will be a time wasting to attempt to contact me or alternatively try to find me, it's hopeless, since I forwarded you an email from YOUR hacked account.
I started malware soft to the adult vids (porno) site and suppose you visited this site to have some fun (you realize what I really mean).
During the time you were paying attention to movies, your internet browser started out to act as a RDP (Remote Control) that have a keylogger which granted me authority to access your screen and web camera.
Next step, my applicationgatheredall data.
You typed passwords on the web-sites you visited, I already caught all of them.
Without a doubt, you are able modify them, or possibly already modified them.
Even so it does not matter, my spyware updates needed data every 5 minutes.
What did I do?
I compiled a reserve copy of the system. Of all files and contact lists.
I have managed to create dual-screen record. The 1st part demonstrates the clip you had been observing (you've got an interesting taste, ha-ha...), the 2nd part demonstrates the video from your web camera.
What should you do?
Good, I think, 1000 USD is a good amount of money for our very little riddle. You will do the deposit by bitcoins (in case you don't recognize this, try to find “how to buy bitcoin” in any search engine).
My bitcoin wallet address: 12YXRfYeszfDSTzc5zH7wBbHPWpJkeSD3p
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it).
You will have 2 days in order to make the payment. (I put an unique pixel in this email, and at this moment I know that you've read this email).
To monitorthe reading of a messageand the actionsin it, I set upa Facebook pixel. Thanks to them. (The stuff thatis appliedfor the authorities can helpus.)
If I fail to get bitcoins, I'll immediately give your video to all your contacts, including family members, colleagues, and so forth?
