LUX salon: Power Tripping


Two underground cult films meditating on control and paranoia from the LUX Collection selected by Benjamin Cook. Scott and Beth B's Letters to Dad (1979, 13 min, 16mm) superimposes the power relations between Jim Jones and his followers onto the parapunk art world of 70s New York and Paul Bartel's Secret Cinema (1966, 30 min, 16mm), a dark/ funny satire on cinematic manipulation from the director of Death Race 2000 and Eating Raoul. SCOTT B AND BETH B LETTERS TO DAD 1979, USA, 13 min, super 8 to 16mm A meditation on authority that superimposes the spectre of Jonestown over the relatively fresh faces of the parapunk art world. The B's asked two dozen artists and musicians to pick from the letters written to Jim Jones by his flock the phrase that he/she could most identify with. PAUL BARTEL SECRET CINEMA 1966, USA, 30 min, 16mm A paranoid fantasy" which hovers in the zone where the cinema merges with the subconscious of its audience, telling the harrowing, hilarious tale of a woman who believes that her life is secretly being filmed and screened to scornful audiences at local movie theaters."
