This weekend NYC is celebrating the work of Michel Auder
, one of Jelena’s closest friends. Anthology Film Archives
, the Lower East Side stronghold fortress of the avantgarde, is offering a two-part program retrospective of Auder’s films from 1969 to 2014. A compulsive documentarian of himself and those around him (quite a notable group: Warhol, the Zanzibar group, his ex-wives Viva and Cindy Sherman, Alice Neel, and last but not least Jelena herself, and many others), Auder dandifies the everyday, paradoxically blending defensive narcissism and emotional depth.
And on Saturday, Participant Inc
will be hosting a launch of a new monograph on Auder: "Stories, myths, ironies, and other songs: conceived, directed, edited and produced by M. Auder."

, Auder’s autobiographical opus, featuring Jelena, Zlato, and the Studio
Don't forget to ask Jelena to show you her collection of Michel's works gathered over the long years of their friendship the next time you come by the Studio.
