L.A. Rebellion Film Series: To Sleep with Anger

April 29, 2016 at Black Cinema House in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=TBPZkFFHqqcp549hLtGFPK

LA Rebellion filmmaker Charles Burnett’s To Sleep With Anger (1990) is a wholly original work that draws closely from Burnett’s personal ties to the South (where he was born) and to South Central Los Angeles (where he grew up), and a singular artistic achievement that transcends categorization, seamlessly incorporating elements of family drama, dark comedy and magical realism. Screening will be followed by a conversation with UChicago film historians Allyson Field and Jacqueline Stewart.

Fela Kuti: Music Is the Weapon at the Logan Theatre

April 15, 2016 at The Logan Theatre in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=Q0gin24BtVz3HXW3MLpAuB

CIMMfest Presents

FELA KUTI: MUISC IS THE WEAPON
Dir: Stéphane Tchalgadjieff / Jean Jaques Flori
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY (France)
60 minutes

Twenty-five years before Fela Kuti’s life became the stuff of Broadway, this crackling French-made documentary captured the impossibly charismatic Afrobeat king and self-styled “Black President” at the peak of his musical, political, and spiritual powers. Railing against corruption and brutality in his native Nigeria, Kuti philosophizes on power and art wearing only his briefs and a cigarette, playing and preaching all night long at his iconic Lagos nightclub, the Shrine. As fresh and as relevant today as the day it was made.

CIMMfest: Peter Murphy “Stripped”

April 14, 2016 at Thalia Hall in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=Y6N8ZwJnOxch07E0aHibhw

Peter Murphy

CIMMfest is proud to present English singer and musician Peter Murphy in a special performance at Thalia Hall. As the lead vocalist of the post-punk quartet Bauhaus, Murphy helped pioneer the gloomy, romantic sounds of the burgeoning gothic rock style of music. Bauhaus released four studio albums before disbanding in 1983. Murphy went on to lead a prolific solo career blending avant-garde, punk, industrial, electronic, Middle Eastern-influenced mysticism (he has resided in Istanbul since 1992), and a distinctive, darkened pop. Over the years, he attracted both mainstream and underground listeners while maintaining his legacy as a cult figure in the goth community. In 2014, Murphy unleashed his tenth studio album, Lion, produced by Killing Joke bassist Martin Glover, a.k.a. Youth, whose production credits also include Paul McCartney and The Verve. The record features Murphy’s most operatic vocalizations to date, layered over a diverse collection of dance-punk, cinematic rock, and electrified ballads.

CIMMfest: Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars at Lincoln Hall

April 17, 2016 at Lincoln Hall in Chicago.

CIMMfest Presents

Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
Directed by: D.A. Pennebaker
Feature Documentary (Great Britain)
90 Minutes

Playing with: J-Nugget
Directed by: Charlotte Kennett

On July 3, 1973, David Bowie closed a year of nearly nonstop touring with a show in London. But it wasn’t just the tour Bowie ended that night at the Hammersmith Odeon, known to only a few of his closest associates, he planned to retire his extraterrestrial glam-rock alter ego, Ziggy Stardust. Thanks to a fortuitous invitation from Bowie’s label, premier music documentarian D. A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back, Monterey Pop) was there to capture the moonage daydream that was Ziggymania in its final throes in this era-defining concert film.

CIMMfest: Songs of Redemption at Comfort Station

April 15, 2016 at Comfort Station Logan Square in Chicago.

CIMMfest Presents:

SONGS OF REDEMPTION
Dir. Amanda Sans
Feature Documentary (Jamaica)
79 Minutes
Watch Trailer: http://bit.ly/1qbBzBw

Jamaica is not generally known for a progressive penal system, but at Kingston’s notorious General Penitentiary inmates have access to musical training, a radio station, and recording facilities as part of a program officials credit with significantly reducing once-rampant violence within the imposing brick walls. Songs of Redemption goes inside “GP” to show how the ability to make music behind bars affects prisoners’ lives in providing not just a desperately needed creative outlet, but also a means to confront their violent pasts and to send a ska-, dub-, and reggae-inflected message of peace to the outside world.
