To do in LA tonight: Flux screening, and Jonas Odell's "Tussilago"


If you're in Los Angeles this evening, don't miss this month's installation of the Flux screening party at the Hammer Museum in West LA. Jonas Odell's Tussilago will have its LA Premiere at the event. A still is above, and the trailer follows after the jump.

The program will feature a mini-retrospective of the work by celebrated Swedish animator Jonas Odell, including his award-winning videos for Goldfrapp and Franz Ferdinand and the Los Angeles premiere of Tussilago, Odell's animated short that tells the story of West German terrorists in the 1970s.

Filmmaker Chris Milk will present "Ain't No Grave", his interactive music video for Johnny Cash. An ever-evolving piece, viewers are invited to collaborate by submitting their own computer renderings of individual frames.

The evening will also include a special presentation by up-and-coming filmmaker Alexandre de Bonrepos, as well as showcase new work for Audio Bullys, Miike Snow, Massive Attack and How to Destroy Angels.
