“CiTiZEN KiNO is cinema hacking. We don’t just watch ! Navigated and performed by XLterrestrials, we’ve come to de-colonize your culture ! … coming soon to a theater near you !” ( invite us! have ship, will travel. )

CiTiZEN KiNO #25: Anthropocene, Indigenous, Aliens … explores the conflicts escalating between the anthropocene and the indigenous … and adds another layer of complexity by infusing the crises with the X-factor of ‘Aliens’. Aliens being either we ourselves, illegals, and/or as in returning from the cashing-out future to become pre-(post-)moderns…  Or the Other possibility, an intervening outside intelligence.

Be prepared for our most ambitiously freaky Kino experiments yet… and more concepts to be gathered and put on display this week as we prepare the psychomedia mash-up.

Some bits we’ve gathered and considering thus far: sections from Adam Curtis’ All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace, Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancocks’ TEd-X controversy, Facebook’s Home Launch commercial, various Jodorowsky bits including the trailer for his new Dance Of Reality, bits from Sirius, the new doc on alien encounters, Michio Kaku on 3 types of civilization, etc… more coming soon.

We also will try to include a little analysis of the “Whole Earth, Disappearance of The Outside” exhibition, and Haus der Kulturen Der Welt’s focus on Anthropocene themes. And some of our issues which came up during the Re:publica13 conference, i.e. Was it another technotopian schmooze fest ?!

We know the subject is broad and still very ambiguous, but feel free to make some suggestions.

< ANd > we’re putting together a fundraiser afterparty to follow the C-Kino program w/ the extraordinary dj Elmo Lewis ( Dusty Ballroom/ Fuchs und Elster ) + Shazam,  + Podinski and Podmosis… XLterrestrial Vjs … and more to be added ??

Here’s a possible playlist for CK#25, in no particular order:

Sections from Adam Curtis’ All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace, Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancocks’ TEd-X controversy, Facebook’s Home Launch commercial, trailer for Jodorowsky new Dance Of Reality + his ‘Panic’ theater days (1968), bits from Sirius, the new doc on alien encounters, Michio Kaku on 3 types of civilization, Clayton Cubitt’s Hysterical Literature, Tom Scott’s “Welcome to Life: the singularity, ruined by lawyers” , The Poke’s “The Internet: A Warning From History”, bits from “Resonance – Beings of frequency” ( full clip here ), excerpts from BBCs Natural World 25th anniversary , Bernd M. Scherer with Akeel Bilgrami on The Anthropocene Project…

New Additions: “The New Inquisition” from Robert A. Wilson, Daarpa’s Humanoid Robots, Richard Dawkins’ ” The Magic of Reality”, Lee Camps’ ” The Most Dangerous Discussion in The World”, ” Naked Citizens” from Journeyman Pictures.

And many more…

We’ll attempt to make some links available if time allows. Please note: the idea here is to develop an “open source” program, where anyone can utilize the programs/themes we’ve constructed, to perform one’s own cinema hackings. But the CiTiZEN KiNO concepts are not encouraging one watch YET MORE films in an online cubical-ized form, but rather navigate them in community settings where they can be shared in realspace, (re-)contextualized, and made sense of via collective intelligence. One, so that we can construct meaningful social responses and Two, perhaps devise an escape route from the information overload and the colonizing Net/Spectacle.

Standby for the deeper subtext for CiTiZEN KiNO #25: Anthropocene, Indigenous, Aliens ! …
