Wednesday marks the third installment of Michael Fallon and Andy Sturdevant's Every Hundred Feet film series at the Trylon microcinema. This time around they'll be screening The Cedar Bar, a 2002 film about the notorious Abstract Expressionist hangout. According to Fallon, the movie is the most unusual of the three films they chose for the ongoing series. So far, the other two movies have been The Art of Failure: Chuck Connelly Not for Sale, an award-winning documentary about an artist who was very big in the 1980s; and A Walk into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory by Esther Robinson, whose uncle disappeared around the time that he was a part of Warhol's Factory. In The Cedar Bar, artist and filmmaker Alfred Leslie offers a collage of Hollywood movie clips, found footage, and bizarre humor in a send-up of the famous meeting place of abstract expressionist painters of the 1940s and '50s.
