PSA: Antonio Liverano film screening April 3rd, 2014

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Thought some people here might be interested. The Armoury is hosting a film screening of I Colori Di Antonio (a film about Antonio Liverano) on April 3rd. There will be a Q&A session, moderated by Bruce Boyer, with Antonio Liverano and the director Gianluca Mgliarotti. I assume some of The Armoury guys will be there as well.

The details of the event are:
7pm, April 3rd, 2014
School of Visual Arts, Beatrice Theater
333 West 23rd Street
NY, NY 10011
(between 8th and 9th Avenue)

Tickets can be bought here:

Webpage for the actual film:

They say never judge a book by its cover, but I found the trailer on the main page to be pretensious. Talk of "immortalization," shots of Jesus icons...

I'd still love to have a Liverano suit made smile.gif Looks like excellent stuff.

There will be a screening in NYC. If you're not able to attend, the second link I posted is to the DVD page.

Great documentary - not pretentious at all. Never met Signor Liverano himself but Taka is the chillest guy east of the Atlantic.

I got the DVD. Unfortunately won't be in town for the screening. The movie seemed more like an infomercial when compared to O'Mast.

I had the same impression.

I was last week in Rome with an association of tailors watching an exposition of reproductions of suits of presidents of the Italian Republic and one was done by him who is one of my fav tailors. I will try to upload the pics.

The trailer for this new movie suggests a high-gloss, beautifully shot film where the clothes (and the setting) are the stars. I'll buy the DVD.

When I saw the O'Mast trailer, however, I was uninspired to see the film. If anything, O'Mast seemed pretentious - including the film's title, and the trailer gave me the sense that I'd be watching a single garment being constructed in real time, as old Italian men sleepily mused about the craft while sitting in easy chairs.

This new film about "AL" feels more like a documentary made for a North American audience - which is where I live.

And that is not "an ugly American" comment --- as I love Europe (I've been there several times). I love Italian clothes. I love Italian films (I prefer French films though).

However, if you want people to be excited about your clothes, you - to a large extent - have to make a propaganda film - and not a video installation fit for an art gallery.

The "AL" film is - thankfully - the former... as it's an argument, and not an homage.

Maybe I'm so jaded by the avant garde but I find it amusing that you guys consider this film and the O mast film "video installation in at art gallery"

That's a misread on your part Tirailleur1 ---

If the trailer of O'Mast is any indication - then it's one boring film - made for niche viewers (within a crevice, within a cleft, within a scar).

If the AL trailer is any indication - it's compelling film-making.

O'Mast appears to have the pacing (and the narrative sensibilities) of Matthew Barney's Cremaster - but without the stunning visuals and unnerving diegesis.

Again - I'm basing it on the trailer.

Yes - I was saying that about O'Mast - not the AL film...

I was drawing a distinction between the two
