Space and cinema collide in our screening of Todd Haynes’s epic glam-rock odyssey VELVET GOLDMINE (1998), a genre exploding faux-biopic that tells the story of Brian Slade, an otherworldly rock demigod, his rise, and his cataclysmic disappearance. Inspired loosely by Ziggy Stardus-era Bowie, this classic of post-queer theory is a decadent, intergalactic ode to glam rock and imagined space.

Paired with VELVET GOLDMINE is James Whitney’s experimental animation short YANTRA (1957). Painted by hand sixty years ago, this curio of non-objective animation merges the almost robotic, early computer technical mastery with hand-painted, spectral imagery to form a mediated, meditative abyss. Get ready to have your mind blown with the poetic spread onto visual planes, and the personal made extraterrestrial.

VIS-À-VIS is an ongoing program curated by Brenda Contreras and Navid Sinaki that pairs narrative works to present the dialogues and deviations when seemingly disparate styles are placed side by side and face to face.

Presented with the USC Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive. For additional information, contact us at [email protected]
