    Jose Antonio SistiagaEre Erera Baleibu Icik Subua Arauaren - Jose Antonio Sistiaga
    SAVAGE REPUBLIC
    perform a new score for the abstract silent film Ere Erera Baleibu Icik Subua Arauaren by Basque artist Jose Antonio Sistiaga

    "Known throughout Europe for his wildly gestural, vibrantly colored abstract paintings, Basque artist Jose Antonio Sistiaga treats color and light as raw materials and sole subject matter in his large scale imersive canvasses, expressing a vigorous and confrontational attitude towards free and direct sensual experience. While actively painting since the 1950s, Sistiaga has since the 60s assembled an equally masterful body of film work, virtually unknown in the United States. Tonight we screen Sistiaga's 1970 masterpiece and best-known film Ere Erera Baleibu Icik Subua Arauare. Meticulously hand-painted over the course of two years the film is a silent, continuously transforming seventy minute experience of pure vibrating light and roiling texture-screened tonight as a brand new print, in all its 35mm Cinemascope glory!" (Steve Polta). www.sfcinematheque.org/#/archive/200406240/

    A hand-painted masterpiece of the 1970s; a legendary band of the 1980s.Sistiaga’s rarely-screened ere erera baleibu icik subua aruaren is a work of uncompromising beauty that absolutely deserves a wider appreciation.Savage Republic, one of the unrecognized godfathers of post-rock, formed roughly three decades ago in the midst of the Los Angeles punk rock scene and abrubtly disbanded in 1989. In recent years, they’ve reformed and their unique sound (akin to a Middle Eastern surf band backed by the rhythm section from Joy Division) is as compelling and inexorable as ever. For Cinematheque’s season opener, Savage Republic – original members Ethan Port and Thom Fuhrmann joined by Alan Waddington and Kerry Dowling – performs a newly commissioned score to Sistiaga’s prodigious work, presented in a stunning 35mm print from Paris.

    José Antonio Sistiaga: Ere Erera Baleibu Icik Subua
    Aruaren 
    (with new live score by Savage Republic)
    Basque abstract artist José Antonio Sistiaga painted directly onto film with homemade inks to create this silent 1970 feature. But Sistiaga’s strangely titled work… is different from the films of Stan Brakhage, who didn’t come to film from painting and had his own rhythm. […] [I]ts combination of color and 35-millimeter ‘scope (with about half an hour in black and white) yields the kind of spectacle one associates with musicals and [science fiction] epics.” -- Jonathan Rosenbaum 

    A hand-painted masterpiece of the 1970s; a legendary band of the 1980s. Sistiaga’s rarely-screened ere erera baleibu icik subua aruaren is a work of uncompromising beauty that absolutely deserves a wider appreciation. Savage Republic, one of the unrecognized godfathers of post-rock, formed roughly three decades ago in the midst of the Los Angeles punk rock scene and abruptly disbanded in 1989. In recent years, they’ve reformed and their unique sound (somewhat akin to a Middle Eastern surf band backed by the rhythm section from Joy Division) is as compelling and inexorable as ever. Original members Ethan Port and Thom Fuhrmann, joined by Alan Waddington and Kerry Dowling, will perform their newly commissioned score to Sistiaga’s prodigious work (presented in a stunning 35mm print from Paris.)
