Through the Lens: Grey Gardens Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming screening of Grey Gardens on Wednesday, December 7th at 7pm at the City Library downtown location. This illuminating documentary follows two women who lived together at the Grey Gardens estate for decades in increasing squalor and isolation and their recollection of their past experiences. Please join us for the film and stick around afterward for a post-film discussion about the film and its resonance today with a University of Utah professor and KUER’s RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio. Presented as part of our Through the Lens series, which for 2022 features a collaboration with the University of Utah’s Department of Film and Media Arts to present an extended exploration of what many Film Lovers regard as the “Classic Films” in cinematic history. The post-film discussion will ask the question “Why is this film a classic and who is it a classic for?” SYNOPSIS Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (“Big Edie”) and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale (“Little Edie”) were the aunt and the first cousin, respectively, of former US First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Throughout the fall of 1971 and into 1972, their living conditions—their house was infested by fleas, inhabited by numerous cats and raccoons, deprived of running water, and filled with garbage and decay—were exposed as the result of an article in the National Enquirer and a cover story in New York Magazine after a series of inspections (which the Beales called “raids”) by the Suffolk County Health Department. With the Beale women facing eviction and the razing of their house, in the summer of 1972 Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill provided the necessary funds to stabilize and repair the dilapidated house so that it would meet village codes.

KRCL's Music Meets Movies - Jingle Bell Rocks!

KRCL's Music Meets Movies takes a sharp turn towards the holidays, with what some say is unnatural; the underground world of alternative Christmas music.

In JINGLE BELL ROCKS!, director Mitchell Kezin delves into the minds of some of the world’s most legendary Christmas music fanatics and hits the road to hang with his holiday heroes – including hip hop legend Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons of RUN-D.M.C., The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne, filmmaker John Waters, bebopper Bob Dorough, L.A. DJ and musicologist Dr. Demento, and Calypso legend The Mighty Sparrow. In his search for the twelve best, underappreciated Christmas songs ever recorded, Kezin both asks and answers the question, “Why, when Christmas rolls around, are we still stuck cozying up with Bing Crosby under a blanket of snow?”

The doc also opens our eyes to a mix-tape of twelve of the weirdest, wildest, most poignant Christmas songs you’ve never heard.
