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

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.

*FAMILY is a nice book store in Los Angeles that hosts many good art and music shows, and also has quite a few of Mike's posters etc.
