Event Description

Saturday, August 12th the Downtown Independent is presenting a series of films: Detective Lessons with Nick Mandrake, Young Turks, and Tales of the American. The screening will begin at 7:30 PM. 

More information on these films can be found at youngturksmovie.com and talesoftheamerican.com.

"Young Turks"
From 1977 to 1981, multimedia artist Stephen Seemayer took a Super-8mm movie camera and captured some of the artists and denizens of Downtown L.A. in their unnatural habitat. He filmed them at work and at play, discussing art and the experience of living amid the gritty alleys and deserted industrial buildings at the city’s urban core. “Young Turks,” directed by Seemayer and written and edited by Pamela Wilson, takes a look back at a time when rents were cheap and life was edgy in Downtown L.A.
"Tales of the American"
Filmmakers Pamela Wilson and Stephen Seemayer will present a sneak peek of their latest documentary, in the final stages of post-production, "Tales of the American." The film examines the history of the American Hotel, which for decades was a free zone of creativity and now represents the heart of L.A.’s changing Arts District.
"Detective Lessons With Nick Mandrake"
He's a private eye and a public menace. This dark comedy was directed by and stars Zach Seemayer as a bumbling and love-smitten gumshoe. The short film is a hilarious spoof of film noir and how-to (or how NOT to) videos.
