The Echo Park Film Center hosts Cinema Cabaret: Short Films by Sandra Powers tonight at 8 pm. The evening combines the mysterious and fantastical short films by Sandra Powers (co-founder of the Masque Films art collective), with live cabaret performance by the renowned opera singer Timur Bekbosunov. “Exploring the effusive elements of shadows and reflections, often in a ‘music video’ form, Sandra's work incorporates early film and malerisch aesthetics, resulting in surrealistic imagery that is derived from dreams and imagination.” Tickets are $5.
