Pat ONeill in person!

Filmforum is delighted to host a return screening of Pat ONeills latest film, Where the Chocolate Mountains, which has only played once before in Los Angeles.  A tour de force of digital art, Where the Chocolate Mountains (2015, 55 min.) is a major new opus from Pat ONeill, one of the all-time guiding lights of the Los Angeles avant-garde, whose pioneering use of the optical printer marked a creative breakthrough in composite image-making in cinema. Continuing in the vein of his renowned 35mm epics Water and Power (1989), Trouble in the Image (1996) and Decay of Fiction (2002), the founding CalArts faculty member combines haunting cinematography of the Chocolate Mountains along the border between California and Arizonalong used as a bombing range by the militarywith footage shot in L.A., Mexico and Prague, intimate self-portraits, and recurring graphic motifs to create irrepressible, stunningly detailed streams of multilayered sight and sound.  Steve Anker, REDCAT

Tickets: $10 general; $6 for students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.

Where the Chocolate Mountains (2015, 55 min.)
By Pat ONeill

About The Chocolate Mountains
The Chocolate Mountains lie along the border between South Eastern California and Arizona just North of the Mexico border. Much of the range is used for bombing practice by the U.S. military and its clients. It is off limits to everyone else. The mountains do not appear in the film, though their name is spoken, questioningly, by an actor transplanted from another movie.
The film is made up of wooden cones in rotary motion, human bodies, fire, smoke and bells.
Occasional interruptions and narrative are provided by a lame Irish Retriever.
There are some stories, as well.
(Pat ONeill)
