Hazel (dual) + Gwetto

Thursday, Mar 14, 2024 at 6:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With directors Kevin Jerome Everson and Michaël Andrianaly in person 

Hazel (dual) 

Dir. Kevin Jerome Everson. U.S. 2023, 12 mins. DCP. In Everson’s mesmerizing black-and-white diptych (hence “dual”), actor-musician Ricky Goldman (seen in Everson and Claudrena N. Harold’s Gospel Hill, First Look 2023) incarnates Eddie Hazel, the virtuoso lead guitarist of George Clinton’s Funkadelic. As he performs both the rhythm and lead parts of the soloist’s legendary “Maggot Brain,” Goldman and Everson seek out the generative spark, perhaps a legendary manipulation by Clinton, that led Hazel to play with such passion. North American premiere 


Dir. Michaël Andrianaly. Madagascar. 2023, 52 mins. DCP. In Malagasy with English subtitles. Acclaimed documentarian Andrianaly (Nofinofy, First Look 20/21) returns with another beautifully crafted piece of vérité filmmaking. In Tamatave, the economic capital of Madagascar, four undocumented workers from across the country—Jelco, Justin, Rabetsy, and Mamy—work a neighborhood car wash. Exploited by their unseen but all-seeing boss, stigmatized by locals, and hounded by the police, the men endure their lot until they can earn enough to secure their identity papers and seek a better future. With his peerless sense of visual economy and observational empathy, Andrianaly depicts the long, hot days and sleepless nights of their shared existence, gradually building to a final note of rebellious optimism. 2024 True Vision Award, True/False Film Festival. New York premiere
