A discussion with filmmaker-artist Mike Mills

Perhaps best known for his 2004 film Thumbsucker, Mike Mills, the filmmaker, graphic artist, and Cooper Union alum, has been working for more than 15 years directing music videos for the likes of Air, Blonde Redhead, Yoko Ono, and Bran Van 3000, and designing album covers for the Beastie Boys and Sonic Youth, among others. Graphics Films is the first retrospective monograph on his work, and tonight Mills discusses the book with photographer, curator, publisher, and designer Tim Barber.

Mike Mills presents Family Sundays Film Series 

Family Sundays with Mike Mills
Sunday, February 8th at 8pm @ Cinefamily
611 N Fairfax Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
323.655.2520

553.jpg
Once a month The Cinefamily will host "Family Sundays", where we will bring in people we admire and respect--artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, comedians, or generally inspiring folk--to curate and introduce a night of films. First, they'll show lesser- seen short films that they've made, or that have been made about them--or that they just like. Afterwards, they'll show a feature that has personally influenced them, and finally they'll explain it all and take your questions too. Tickets are $12, and the show starts at 8pm.

Kicking off the series is artist/designer/filmaker Mike Mills, whose work you probably know if you ever been in the store. He's directed music videos for Sonic Youth, Yoko Ono, Beastie Boys, Blonde Redhead and Ol' Dirty Bastard, as well as the film Thumbsucker, and the documentaries Does Your Soul Have a Cold? and Deformer (about Ed Templeton). Medium is less important to Mills' work than an encompassing vision that permeates all his diverse projects. Whether it's a television commercial, a watercolor painting, or a fabric design, everything Mills concocts is suffused by his current emotional and spiritual disposition. He has chosen to show and share his thoughts about Istvan Szabo's Lovefilm, a lesser-known 1970 masterpiece from the Czech New Wave.

Come to Family at 7pm for the opening of the Boom Silk screen poster show, then walk on over to the theatre at 8pm.
