"how do dubbing and subtitling impact the transnational audience’s identification with or distancing from the actions and narratives on screen, during the reception process?”

"Cinema ought to stop ‘being cinematic’, stop playacting, and set up specific relationships with video, with electronic and digital images, in order to develop a new form of resistance and combat the televisual function of surveillance and control. It’s not a question of short-circuiting television — how could that be possible? — but of preventing television subverting or short-circuiting the extension of cinema into the new types of image."
Gilles Deleuze, Letter to Serge Daney (via experimentalcinema)

Recently his work with film has been motivated by the need to understand the ways in which audiences’ brian patterns function. He has found that certain films will produce nearly the exact same patterns in each of the audiences’ thoughts.Using a machine known as the fMRI, Uri Hasson has his subjects lie in tubes and watch movies, while their eyes are tracked to see which part of the movie they’re watching. Then he determines people’s visual responses to a) random footage, b) artworks (video art), c) documentaries, d) commercial films, e) Hollywood blockbusters and f) propaganda to see how film makers totally control people’s visions. Free eventhasson.org

Tonight! The last film in this series. January 25th: Mystery Train (1989) dir. Jim Jarmusch @ The Windup Space Poster designed by Chloe Maratta Soundtrack Interpretation provided by The Sterling Sisters(http:// spiralcinemapresents.bandcamp.com/album/mystery-train-redux)

This “boozy and beautiful pilgrimage to an iconic American ghost town” shot as three different films is joined together by the central setting of Memphis, Tennessee and the Arcade Hotel. Featuring a Japanese couple that take a tour of Sun Studios, an Italian widow that sees the ghost of Elvis, and Joe Strummer holding up a liquor store, this film is directly related to the bar culture in which it is screened.

This wednesday

January 25th: Mystery Train (1989) dir. by Jim Jarmusch @ Windup Space

Soundtrack provided by Sterling Sisters

Poster by Chloe Maratta

Trudging through an empty street, one starts noticing things that might not have appeared during a time when a crowd of bodies flood the sidewalks. Unknown lamp posts, billboards, open fields, and dead animals appear where one’s eyes previously glide past these transitory landmarks. The Sterling Sister’s soundtrack inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s 1989 film Mystery Train appears as a devoted voyage through a town once plagued by memories of lost loves, shaken faiths, and awakened memories. This five song EP stands at the end of the series as being one of the more emotionally raw and allegorical of the various soundtracks presented.

It seems nearly too obvious at this point to take a road trip and listen to the likes of The Doors, Kris Kristofferson, Chuck Berry, and Arlo Guthrie. Yet there is something about those bands that blend in perfectly with the sunlight filtering in through the windshield and the “anything goes” attitude of their time. Revisiting this structure of the road trip soundtrack, Justin Kelly had this to say about his new mix, “Traveling to me is partly about repetition, since this film happens mostly on the road, I found it fitting to make a mix of original electronic music.” In creating new standards for road trip soundtracks, can things such as acoustic guitars and catchy chorus hooks be eliminated in lieu of subtly shifting waves of sound that filter through the windshields just as appropriately
