Wednesday, July 15 at 7:30 pm

Resolutely independent filmmaker Jem Cohen (Chain, Benjamin Smoke, Instrument) hosts Ian MacKaye (Evens, Fugazi, Minor Threat) and John Cohen (There Is No Eye) for an evening exploring folk, punk and filmmaking as forms of homemade expression, featuring screenings of John Cohen's 1963 music documentary That High Lonesome Sound; Jem Cohen's Nice Evening, Transmission Down, a portrait of Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous; a short film of Patti Smith's cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"; never-before-seen outtakes from Jem's Fugazi film Instrument; and other surprises.

The series "Movie Nights with Jem Cohen" presents three nights of sneak previews, premieres and discussion with special guests including Guy Picciotto from Fugazi. The next two evenings in the program will occur in August and September.
