  • Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession

  • Z Film/Video Festival

    Organized by local video maker Usama Alshaibi, this third annual indie festival offers an energetic collection of nine videos and two films from Paris and across the U.S. In Christina Spangler's moody and assured 16-millimeter clay animation Unearthed a dropped potato rolls into the forest and sprouts legs. more...

  • Z Film Festival

    Now in its fourth year, the Z Film Festival slides toward irrelevance with this collection of mostly unpleasant and unenlightening videos that “explore the representation of sex and aggression.” Highlights include a bloodied nude with a whiskey bottle up her vagina (Meg McCarville's Je Ne Regrette Rien), clips from Brian De Palma's Carrie interspersed with gay porn (Charles Lum's Indelible), and a bandaged mime squirting blood from her anus (Kristie and Usama Alshaibi's Convulsion Expulsion). more...

    The organizers of the Z Film Festival have decided to make this year's installment the last, which seems like a sound decision: the new shorts collected in the first program, “ZFF 5,” lack the vision and audacity of the greatest hits gathered in the second, “The Best of Z Fest.” Christa Conforti's new stop-motion animation Germs, about a sock-puppet monkey fascinated with its nasal residue, seems even more juvenile compared to John Goras's hilariously profane Chirpy, which screened at the inaugural fest in 2001. more...
  • Zabriskie Point

    Though Michelangelo Antonioni's only American film was very poorly received when it was released in 1969, time has been much kinder to it than to, say, La Notte, which was made a decade earlier. more...

    This 1971 genre-bending adaptation of Herman Hesse's Siddhartha is part western, part rock 'n' roll musical. more...
  • Los Zafiros: Music From the Edge of Time

    The Cuban vocal quartet Los Zafiros (the Sapphires) reached the height of their popularity in the 60s, when their fusion of calypso rhythms, doo-wop harmonizing, and Motown choreography won the adoration of native and European fans alike. more...
  • Zagreb School of Animation program

    The famous Zagreb School of Animation rejected the Disney style for a looser kind of drawing, and these eight films, made between 1958 and 1980, show an admirable diversity of styles. more...
