Kinoklúbbur Film Club Presents

Kinoklúbbur Film Club Presents

Published December 8, 2010

This month Kinoklúbbur will be screening the 16mm shorts of two American-based experimental filmmakers, giving us a rare opportunity to take in some stranger than usual films. Leighton Pierce’s award-winning films often play with time and perspective. In ‘Not Much Time’ (1982), a bank robbery repeats itself several times, but from a different perspective each time. On December 9, Kinoklúbbur will screen six of Leighton’s shorts including ‘Not Much Time’ at Hafnarhúsið. It’s a free show, too!
The other filmmaker is Tom Palazzolo, who has been making films since 1965. His films are primarily set in Chicago and capture some of the weird and wonderful rituals of modern American culture, recording ceremonies such as bodybuilding, senior picnics, carnivals, parades, protests and weddings. Tom has made over fifty films and Kinoklúbbur will screen five of them, including ‘Tattooed Lady’ (1967) wherein a famous carnie of Chicago’s Riverview amusement park tells her life story and ‘Jerry’s’ (1976), a film about an outspoken deli owner.
