Named after the seminal collective run by Amos and Marcia Vogel from 1947 to 1963, Cinema 16 keeps alive avant-garde films through special programs that have spread from New York City now to Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland, and Mexico City. Curated by Molly Surno, Cinema 16 heads into the Kitchen on Tuesday, presenting five short experimental silent films with specially commissioned scores by Psychic Ills. The New York-based trance band, which has released such records as Astral Occurrence, Catoptric, Telesthetic Tape, and the twelve-inch Frkwys Vol. 4, will play live to Raymonde Carasco’s Gradiva Sketch I (1978), Lichter Peter’s Light Sleep (2009), Ron Rice’s Chumlum (1964), John E Schmitz’s The Voices (1953), and Beryl Sokoloff and Crita Grauer’s Necromancia (late 1950s).
