As part of our tribute to AAFF founder George Manupelli, who passed away in September, the 53rd AAFF will have a special screening of Manupelli's 1974 16mm film Portraits, Self Portraits and Still Lives 1972-73 with Special Reference to the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, or This is Not Aufwiedersehen This is Goodbye. This film originally closed the 12th AAFF on March 16, 1974.
Manupelli's 45 minute silent film will be accompanied by an original score performed live by Los Angeles-based composer David Rosenboom. A collaborator of Manupelli's in the 1970s, Rosenboom is a celebrated performer and composer and one of the pioneering figures of American experimental music.
