The five-program series "Troubling the Image: New + Restored Experimental Cinema" features an eclectic and wide-ranging group of works that celebrate the vibrancy of experimental and almost-experimental cinema from near and far, now and then.

Cinema as process, movement as mechanics, image as collage: Untitled Joseph Cornell Film (The Wool Collage) (c. 1940-55) is a previously unknown film by the master collage filmmaker and box builder. Keewatin Dewdney’s The Maltese Cross Movement (1967) takes as its central motif the titular mechanical operation of a film projector. Daniel Barnett’s travelogue-of-sorts The Chinese Typewriter (1978-83) demonstrates his interest in language, poetry, and the construction of meaning. Julie Murray’s untitled (earth) (2015) shuttles through a 35mm film print, blurring the image, freezing frames, and finding possible new meanings. Mónica Savirón’s Answer Print (2016) wryly uses only badly faded found images in a work that is more about questions than answers.

Curated by Julia Gibbs and Patrick Friel.
