EXILE GALLERY Berlin, Germany
EXILE cordially invites you to a screening of rare short films by American photographer, publisher and filmmaker Bob Mizer.
Encouraged by his friend and mentor Dick Fontaine, Mizer began releasing an ongoing series of “one-reel” films in the 1950s for mail-order customers. Over the years, these initial films evolved from b&w silent films to full-color sync-sound films exhibited in select movie houses and then later, to longer and more explicit videos which were widely distributed.
For this special screening, Miller presents a taste of the full range and history of the artist’s filmic output; featuring Joe D’Allesandro’s screen debut amongst others.
