Machine Project’s First Film, Screening at MOCA
Date & Time
January 31, 2011, 8pm

Directed by Chris Wilcha.

On the final day of the Artist’s Museum exhibition, MOCA is hosting the premiere of Machine Project’s first film. Shot over the course of one 12 hour day, we documented a dozen performances, lectures, workshops and activities, which occurred simultaneously in the gallery, in the apartment above the gallery, and the basement below. The day-long event included a experimental women’s choir, a drum solo spilling out the second story window, a parent-child car theft workshop, a talk by Jason Brown revealing the secrets of Los Angeles’s occult netherworlds, and a demonstration of paleolithic fire starting technology.
