ILFA's been away from the blog this week, but I wanted to get a few weekend events posted:

- High school photographer/prodigy Nahshon Outten has his first solo show, featuring "cinematic portraits of daily life for the often overlooked and underestimated youth of Brooklyn" at Nimba Cafe on Saturday from 6-9pm. 

- Project 2x1, a documentary shot in Crown Heights with Google Glass (in part), premieres at Mister Rogers (Rogers and President) on Sunday. Complete info is copied below.

Project 2x1, a Google Glass documentary, is premiering this Sunday, December 8th in Crown Heights. In hopes of bringing the film's mission of cultural appreciation and inter-community dialogue to life, the evening will include a film screening, Q&A with the filmmakers, ethnic cuisine, live music performances from Crown Heights musicians and a cultural celebration of the film’s subjects: The Caribbean and Hasidic communities of Crown Heights. 

Watch the trailer and learn more about the film on our interactive site: www.project2x1.com

Quartet Dali Live Film Score


Quartet Dali is a contemporary improvisation group set up specifically for multi disciplinary performances. The focus of this performance is to present an improvised live score to a series of classic silent films. The performance flows seamlessly between musical performance and incidental music that surrounds the projection of a series of short silent films from Chaplin, Dalí, Duchamp, Méliès and others. Leaning towards avant-garde, Quartet Dali wants to blend musical concert performance with incidental film music allowing both the music and the film to be understood in a different way.
