      Hi Folks,

      I just learned that BCC will be open the next few weekends during the Open Studios in Berkeley program and that the Spring 2008 and Fall 2007 Showcases will be screening to the general public in our auditorium. I'm waiting to get more details and will fill you in.

      Louder, Faster: Punk in Performance
      June 5 – 26, 2008


      Punk had its moment—well, moments. In San Francisco, the punk scene rose to raucous in late 1976 and was spent some four years later. But during that time, there was hell to play. Louder, Faster explores punk music and the cultural collisions that provoked it by privileging the primary—films and videos made at the moment, not nostalgic looks back, but hardcore reports from the pogo pit.

      8:30  The Blank Generation
      Ivan Kral, Amos Poe (U.S., 1976, 55 mins)
      Mindaugis Bagdon in Person
      With Talking Heads, Blondie, the Ramones, Patti Smith, Television, Wayne County, and others
      Amos Poe and Ivan Kral captured the Talking Heads, the Ramones, Television, Patti Smith, and others just as the NYC punk scene came roaring into life. With shorts Deaf/Punk (Richard Gaikowski, 1979, 8 mins) and Louder, Faster, Shorter (Mindaugis Bagdon, 1979, 17 mins).
      8:45  D.O.A.
      Lech Kowalski (U.S., 1980, 99 mins)
      With the Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, the Clash, Sham 69, X-Ray Spex, the Dead Boys, and others
      Lech Kowalski’s dead-on doc sights the Sex Pistols on their terminal tour in 1978.  With Residents short Hello Skinny (Graeme Whifler, 1978, 3 mins).
      8:30  Target Video
      Joe Rees (U.S., 1978–88, c. 120 mins)
      Joe Rees in Person
      With the Nuns, Crime, the Avengers, the Screamers, Negative Trend, Dead Kennedys, the Mutants, Flipper, and others
      Between 1978 and 1988, Rees recorded hundreds of shows around San Francisco. Witness Crime at San Quentin, the Cramps at Napa State Hospital, the Mutants at the School for the Deaf, and more.
      8:40  The Decline of Western Civilization
      Penelope Spheeris (U.S., 1981, 100 mins)
      Penelope Spheeris in Person
      With Fear, the Germs, X, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and others
      With X, Black Flag, the Germs, and others, Spheeris documents the dregs of Western Civ, a.k.a. L.A. With Bruce Conner/Devo short Mongoloid (Bruce Conner, 1978, 4 mins).
      Presented in conjunction with the BAM exhibition Bruce Conner: Mabuhay Gardens, on view through August 4.
