FRINGE L.A.
A series of movies that shine light on Angelenos who have been marginalized and ignored by popular cinematic representations of the city. Join us under the Broadway St. bridge in Los Angeles State Historic Park and immerse yourself in these enthralling, exciting, and highly personal masterpieces, that exist beyond the edges of Hollywood and right in the heart of the fringe.

FILM SCREENINGS IN THE VIADUCT
In the Viaduct, viewers have a breathtaking view of the illuminated Los Angeles skyline from under the massive concrete vaulted ceiling. The film is projected against the concrete wall (actually the Gold Line incline) under the bridge, and the train whizzes by overhead throughout the evening. There will be a campfire for roasting marshmallows, and a popcorn machine. We have hay bales and outdoor chairs for seating. Please bring blankets and beverages. The event is free and open to the public.

The VIADUCT
The Historic North Broadway Bridge traverses the north end of Los Angeles State Historic Park. The Beaux Arts bridge was built in 1911 and is one of the twelve historic bridges that crosses the LA River. California State Parks realized that this architecturally beautiful bridge, particularly the underside, was underutilized and not easily accessible to the public. In an effort to connect with the burgeoning downtown arts community, we’ve been working to create programming that will engage the public with the park in new and exciting ways. We conceived of the LA Noir series as a way to bring the public to the bridge to enjoy film in an unusual and historic setting. The North Broadway Bridge was originally called the “Buena Vista Viaduct.” Thus, The Viaduct.

FRINGE LA: The Exiles (1961)

THE EXILESfinal

FRINGE L.A.
A series of movies that shine light on Angelenos who have been marginalized and ignored by popular cinematic representations of the city. Join us under the Broadway St. bridge in Los Angeles State Historic Park and immerse yourself in these enthralling, exciting, and highly personal masterpieces, that exist beyond the edges of Hollywood and right in the heart of the fringe.

The Exiles (dir. Kent Mackenzie, 73min.)
Bunker Hill, Los Angeles, 1961.
Spend one night with a group of Native American Indians as they dance, drink, gamble, drive, carouse and still find time to explore the depths of depression, disappointment, and loneliness. This masterpiece (rediscovered only a few years ago!) not only shows a Lost Angeles like no other, but gets deeper into the human psyche than almost any other film. Mixing poetic voice-over confessionals, with exhilarating documentary-like photography, rocking period music, and the soulful details of an oppressed culture pushed to the edge, The Exiles is not to be missed!

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

IMG_1740 IMG_1741 IMG_1743 IMG_1751 IMG_1752

Last night Olivia Chumacero and the Everything is Medicine community (http://everythingismedicine.wordpress.com) worked tirelessly to build beautiful alters commemorating Dia de Los Muertos. They kept a ceremonial fire burning all through the night as they moved from alter to alter conducting different traditional Tongva ceremonies to honor the dead. The alters are surrounded by soft white sand dolphins which are central to the Tongva creation myth.

There are personal alters, alters honoring Mayan women who died in sex trafficking rings, LGBT alters, and an alter shaped like a canoe honoring Filipino’s who have passed. These alters will be left at the North end of Los Angeles State Historic Park until they decompose and are reunited with the land.

The ceremonies continue all through today, and its traces will stay in the soil.

When I arrived at the ceremony site this morning, everybody was on the edge of sleep. Once they have rested up I will be speaking Olivia Chumacero about the ceremonies and the symbolism in these offerings. You should expect an interview in the upcoming days…

I had such a beautiful morning. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.
