  • Massart Film Society: Josh Deveau - Relics

    Massart Film Society presents,
    Josh Deveau - Relics
    A series of scenes from his work of the last 5 years

    "A 'punk' mashup of my films "A Weekend (a very good movie)", "The Rosselsons", "A Week Off (an even better movie)", and "A Pregnancy (a very serious movie)".

    Josh Deveau - A Greater Boston based artist/film maker, MassArt ’13 Alumni. His work focuses on his offbeat, absurd, in your face sense of humor. Described as “deeply tongue-in-cheek camp melodramas”, his work provokes viewers to laugh, though the way you laugh will vary from the standard ‘LOL’ to the less popular ‘Face Palm, Head Shake, and Giggle’.

  • Note To Self: Psychosexual Films of Nazli Dincel

    Crater-Lab presents "Note To Self", a programme of 16mm films by Nazli Dinçel about psychosexuality, that she just presented at the FOCUS section in the FIDMarseille festival. Turkish filmmaker Nazly Dinçel will be present to talk about the programme and about her enquiry on psychosexuality and filmic matter.

    An evening of visceral and provocative handmade films that explore bodies, acts of the solitary, text, language, visual information and personal exposure. Nazli Dinçel’s work reflects on experiences of disruption. She records the body in context with arousal, immigration, dislocation and desire in juxtaposition with the medium’s material: texture, color and the passing of emulsion. Her use of text as image, language and sound attempts the failure of memory and her own displacement within a western society.

  • GAZE: Certain Tension

    “I sometimes keep to one shot for a long time. A certain tension builds up between the beginning and the end of that shot, which immediately looks like fiction. It is indeed difficult to escape from fiction. But in the same way it’s also difficult to escape from the documentary style.” —Chantal Akerman.

    GAZE invites submissions for Certain Tension, a tribute to Chantal Akerman’s vision and practice in exploring tensions between documentary and fiction. With this exploratory homage, we invite films and videos that extend or critique Akerman’s work. The call is open to short form films, videos, or installations that draw on the themes of Akerman’s legacy––personal explorations that entangle with social issues, the relation between personal memory and political history, the cinematic experience of time, and the interweaving of fiction and documentary.

  • Light Movement 14: Oracles

    ORACLES: Films by Los Angeles Artists
    Selected by Andrew Kim in collaboration with Labor Berlin

    Messages can be obscure, and this might be the result of place: Los Angeles. Seemingly, there is no rhyme or reason ... or is there? One must look past the surface. This program represents an array of perspectives from Los Angeles area seers. Employing various formal approaches, these films attempt to see beyond face value. At once, these visions are unified by the spirit of experimentation and independent expression that characterizes the alternative cinema in Los Angeles.
