FILM SCREENING + PERFORMANCE: Man Ray’s Return to Reason

Join us for a screening of Man Ray’s newly restored experimental masterpieces Return to Reason (1923-1929) with a new soundtrack by Jim Jarmusch-Carter Logan combo Sqürl. The evening will begin with a solo performance by the Asheville-based multi-instrumentalist Chad Beattie, followed by a free screening of the films.The four films Man Ray directed between 1923 and 1929, Le Retour à la raison, Emak-Bakia, L’Étoile de mer and Les Mystères du Château du Dé represent a high watermark of early European avant-garde cinema, a seminal nexus of experimental technique, surrealist narrative, and playful abstraction as suffused with dark eroticism.
