Light Industry Hosts Peter Goldman's "Echoes of Silence" introduced by Jonas Mekas

This Tuesday, at 8 PM, Light Industry will screen a rarely shown film: Peter Emmanuel Goldman's Echoes of Silence.

from the Light Industry description:

Peter Emmanuel Goldman's rarely screened debut, an underappreciated landmark of the New American Cinema, chronicles the lives of twenty-somethings adrift in New York City, finding tremendous pathos in the smallest moments: a furtive glance across a museum gallery, girls putting on makeup, a stroll beneath the Times Square Marquees. Composed with a lo-fi purity and bereft of diegetic sound, its shadowy images of youthful flaneurs are paired with evocatively hand-painted title cards and a dynamic soundtrack drawn from the artist's LPs that, when combines, conjure up a ballad of sexual dependency like none other.

Light Industry is at 55 33rd Street, on the 3rd Floor. Admission is $6 at the door.
