The Museum of Arts & Design Celebrates Punks on Screen & Screenprinting

From stapled zines, to xeroxed flyers, and 45 single sleeves, the aesthetics of the punk movement had an aesthetic of its own, with reverberations felt to this day in the world of art, media, and music. Running April 9 to August 18, Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976 - 1986, at the Museum of Arts and Design (2 Columbus Circle, NY, NY) collects hundreds of texts, images, DIY zines, and more from the era that gave us The Ramones, Bad Brains, Patti Smith, and more.

Running alongside the exhibit is a film series of punk movies from around the world. Global Punk, running April 25 to July 11, is comprised of 7 films from countries including Mexico (Nadie es Innocente), Japan (Wild Zero), Hungary (The Dog’s Night Song), and the U.K. (Jubilee).

Hail Satan, What The Fest!? is Back!


Putting a spotlight on the strange, bizarre, and shocking, the What The Fest!? at the IFC Center returns March 20 to the 24th. The opening night film is Larry Fessenden’s Depraved, a modern day re-invention of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The closing night film is Kirill Sokolov’s Why Don’t You Just Die!, and this film of crime, corruption, greed, dysfunctional families, and unrequited love is preceded by stand up from Last Comic Standing’s Harrison Greenbaum.

The Go Straight to Hell sidebar of the fest features the World Premiere Restoration of Ray Laurent’s 1970 documentary Satanis: The Devil's Mass, a look inside the infamous “Black House” in San Francisco, where the Church of Satan was established; a talk by author Grady Hendrix about the heavy metal “Satanic Panic” of the 80s, based on his book We Sold Our Souls and followed by a book signing, and the NY Premiere of Penny Lane’s Sundance hit documentary Hail Satan? with subject Lucien Greaves in-person.

Along with the expected panels is a special discussion entitled FEMALE TROUBLE: FEARLESS WOMEN LEADING THE WAY IN HORROR, FANTASY, AND SUSPENSE, with speakers Meredith Alloway (Film Journalist, Independent Filmmaker), Roxanne Benjamin (Director of Body at Brighton Rock), Emma Tammi (Director of The Wind), and Jenn Wexler (Producer, Depraved).
