Film trove from documentarian Bill Daniels @ minicine? on Wed, Sept 15, 8 pm

Film Tramp Bill Daniel is back in the van and on tour with a new program of recently unearthed16mm footage, says David Nelson. Most of this footage is truly orphaned film--- abandoned, lost, found, and now presented raw without editing, and none of it has seen the light of YouTube.

Sonic Orphans is a collection of lost and found music film clips--- a weird mix of oddities… from raw news footage of the Beatles arriving in San Francisco in 1965, silent rushes from a 1977 student film starring the Avengers, a 1980 student film featuring early Austin punks Boy Problems and the Huns…

Also as part of this program, Daniel will absolutely cover the walls with his high contrast B&W documentary photos shot at punk shows, mainly Austin, TX, between 1980 and 1984. This includes Texas bands such as, The Big Boys, Butthole Surfers, DRI, Toxic Shock and touring bands, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains and the Minute Men.

Discussion during the night will explore the relationship between underground film and music cultures…

Live music to be curated by John Martin.
