For the record, CineMarfa & MBCO combined to screen NOWSREAL a film made by and about the Diggers in 1967 on Friday, July 20, 2012. We did it because we wanted to and almost one hundred people came and most of them stayed late to talk about it. We also did it to celebrate the publication of Notes From a Revolution: Com/Co, The Diggers & The Haight, edited by our friend and fellow CineMarfa member, David Hollander, along with Kristine McKenna, who edited the wonderful Semina Culture book a few years back.
Filmmaker Laida Lertxundi, whose works have been featured in exhibitions at MoMA, Lacma, the Reina Sofia, as well as countless avant garde film events and festivals around the world, will be sharing a few of her short films.
David Fenster, current Chinati Foundation Artist in Residence will be screening his latest feature length film at the Marfa Book Co.
