Neil Kendricks' 9th Annual alt.pictureshows Returns to MCASD La Jolla

For three hours (7 - 10 p.m.) on Thursday, August 25, La Jolla's Museum of Contemporary Art reconfigures to become an indoor and outdoor film installation.

It's what Sammy Davis, Jr. would have called an art happening, dig?

This is Neil Kendricks' ninth go-round curating alt.pictureshows, a collection of "indie-minded" short and experimental narrative films and documentaries. Neil is a local writer, teacher, filmmaker, and MCASD Film Curator. He's also an old friend and a personal film barometer. Neil doesn't attend as many screenings as he used to, but when he does, his welcome presence (seated in the row behind me) is generally an indication that we're in for something good.

Chloe Sevigny in Jonathan Caouette's All Flowers in Time.

Highlights of this year's 17 selections include Matt Piedmont's Brick Novax's Diary, winner of Best Short Film at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival; Jonathan "Tarnation" Caouette's new experimental short, All Flowers in Time; Cathy Alberich's fashion documentary Ready to Wear, and the Oscar-winning Logorama.

One of the films was the basis for an installation in the Museum's downstairs thoughtLAB. Ready to Wear follows three women from both sides of the border united by their love of vintage clothing. The museum's reading room will be transformed into a multimedia fashion showcase featuring garments from Tijuana clothing designers. On the adjacent Miles Terrace, guests will enjoy a fashion show at 8 PM, along with a cash bar and DJ-spun music.

Admission to the one-night-only event is $5.00 and free to MCASD Members. Even though several of the films on display are animated, you're advised to hire a babysitter.

Neil Kendricks

In the opinion of this reporter, Neil is sadly underused, as is MCASD's Sherwood Auditorium. A curator with taste and the knowledge to back it up coupled with a terrific venue to watch quality movies, yet Neil is only allowed to strut his stuff but once a year?!

Other than their home theatres, where do La Jollans watch movies? The Cove is no longer. Are locals really looking forward to the AMC LJ's threatened transformation into a "Fork 'N' View?" The Landmark Village is the only game in town, but it frequently takes as much time to make the drive down Prospect as it does watching a feature. Surely there must be a film-loving benefactor out there eager and willing to underwrite a few 35mm film screenings for the community.
