Cleveland-born filmmaker Chuck Hudina will present a program of five of his short films on May 24, 2011.
Chuck Hudina, an acclaimed San Francisco filmmaker, photographer, and visual artist who was born in Cleveland and graduated from Collinwood High School, will appear in person on Tuesday, May 24 at 6:45pm at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Hudina will present a program of five of his short documentaries and experimental works, including Grease (1974), a 47-minute fiction/documentary hybrid about 1950s-style “greasers.” The movie has been likened to Shadows, a groundbreaking early feature by John Cassavetes.
Hudina’s award-winning films have been exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, the Pacific Film Archive, and at the Ann Arbor, Black Maria, and Athens International Film Festivals, among many other venues. This is the first time that Hudina, who has lived in San Francisco for over 30 years, will have a program of his movies shown in his hometown.
The other films in the program are “Ikarus” (1973), a slow-motion dive shot at 3,000 pictures per second; “Bicycle” (1975), a spoke’s-eye view of a bike ride; “On the Corner” (1980), an urban ballet performed by street children; and “Parents' Visit ” (1974), an autobiographical documentary. Total running time of the films is 65 minutes. Hudina will answer audience questions at the screening. The program is for adults only.
“The Films of Chuck Hudina” will be shown in the Aitken Auditorium of the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle, telephone 216.421.7450, cia.edu/cinematheque. Tickets to the show cost $9, Cinematheque members and CIA students & staff $6. Free parking for filmgoers is available in the adjacent CIA lot, located off of East Boulevard.
