201005screening

Setelah vakuum selama dua bulan, kami kembali memutar film tiap Sabtu sore, dengan fokus bulan ini pada sutradara David Lynch. Lynch, yang awalnya mempelajari lukisan di Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts di Philadelphia, tampak memiliki kekhasan tersendiri dalam membuat film. Ada pengulangan tema dan obsesi dalam film-filmnya. Situasi sehari-hari terasa tajam menusuk justru dalam mundanitas berlebihan, bersandingan dengan hal-hal grotesk, seolah dalam mimpi buruk. Kombinasi hal-hal industrial dengan organis, kepolosan dan horor, efek-efek suara, deformasi dan kehalusan saling bertumpang tindih. Lynch juga tampak seperti terobsesi pada (fisiologi) tubuh dan seks: mulut, orifice dan cairan-cairan tubuh (bodily fluids), borok luka, dsb. Karya-karya Lynch mengeksplorasi tema, motif dan gaya dalam berbagai format, narasi dan konteks. Tidak hanya film, dia juga membuat seri TV, dokumenter, lukisan, fotografi, musik (simfoni, pop) dan acara komedi.

Bulan ini, kami akan menampilkan lima dari karyanya: Eraserhead (1977), The Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986), The Straight Story (1999), dan Mulholland Drive (2001). Pemutaran berlangsung tiap Sabtu, 17.30, di C2O, Jl. Dr. Cipto 20 Surabaya 60264 (jalan kecil seberang Konjen Amerika — lihat peta), gratis dan terbuka untuk umum. Sinematek C2O merupakan program pemutaran film dengan tujuan berbagi dan bertukar referensi dari film-film yang diputar, tanpa bermaksud membatasi. Sumbangan dan sokongan dari penonton sangat kami hargai untuk memastikan kelangsungan program ini dan C2O.

Terima kasih pada Erlin Goentoro atas bantuannya yang sangat berharga. Dikarenakan musim hujan, pemutaran akan dilakukan di dalam ruangan dalam TV kecil. Mohon maaf dan terima kasih atas pengertiannya.

Betty Elms bercita-cita menjadi aktris. Setibanya di Los Angeles, California, dia bertemu dan berteman dengan seorang amnesia yang bersembunyi di apartemen tantenya.


After two months of no screening, we are back with a director in focus: David Lynch. Despite the vastly diverse body of work, ranging from painting, photography, documentary, soap opera, music and comedy shows, Lynch managed to develop a somewhat idiosyncratic, instantly recognisable personal signature. Certain themes, motifs and styles recur throughout: exaggerated mundanities in everyday life,  unnvering combinations of the industrial and the organic, innocence and horror, meticulous attention to sound, deformation and sensitivity.

This month we’ll present five of his films: Eraserhead(1977), The Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986)t, The Straight Story (1999) and Mulholland Drive (2001). Screenings are held every Saturday–except on the 30th (Sunday), 17.30,  at C2O library, Jl. Dr. Cipto 20 Surabaya 60264 (across US General Consulate — view map), free and open for public. This screening programme is run independently with the purpose of introducing and sharing references and informations, not necessarily limited films per se. Donations are most gratefully and lovingly welcome. We rely on your donations and support to ensure that we can continue this program for free and open for public.

This month’s screening is made possible thanks to Erlin Goentoro. Please note that due to the rainy season, we’ll be screening the films indoor in our small TV. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

1 Mei 2010 // Eraserhead

1977 | USA | 89 m| BW | 13+ | Bhs. Inggris, teks Inggris

Lynch in his interviews often mention Eraserhead as his most spiritual or perfect film. In this story, Henry Spencer, a printer on a vacation trip, suddenly found his girlfriend already giving birth to a monstrous, premature baby. They married and lived together, but shortly his wife left him by himself to deal with the baby and his nightmarish visions.

Blue Velvet centers around college student named Jeffrey Beaumont, who upon returning from visiting his ill father in hospital, comes across a human ear in a grass field in his idealized American hometown of Lumberton. He proceeds to investigate the ear with assistance from Sandy Williams, who provides him with information and leads from her father, a local police detective. Jeffrey’s investigation draws him deeper into his hometown’s seedy underworld, and sees him forming a sexual relationship with the alluring torch singer, Dorothy Vallens, who may be connected to the ear, and uncovering a breed of criminals, including Frank Booth, who engage in drug abuse and sexual violence.

When he hears that his estranged brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has suffered a stroke, he makes up his mind to go visit him and hopefully make amends before he dies. But because Alvin’s legs and eyes are too impaired for him to receive a driving license, he hitches a trailer to his recently purchased thirty year-old John Deere Lawn tractor and sets off on the 240-mile journey from Laurens, Iowa to Mount Zion, Wisconsin.
