  • Illuminated Hours: The Cinema of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler

    By on

    Initiated amid the flowering of artisanal cinema in 1960s New York and continuing uninterrupted until today, the moving-image careers of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler are among the most captivating in film history. Their art, driven by the quest for a humanely lyrical cinema, transfigures ordinary surroundings into intimate glimpses of transcendence and offers audiences the experience of vision as an open form of poetry.

  • South Korean Experimental Cinema

    By on

    In early 2024, Space Cell invited Richard Touhy & Dianna Barrie (Nanolab, Australia) to do the first Kineko workshop. Due to the increase in the price of film and the disappearance of professional laboratories, Korean filmmakers are having difficulty carrying out their projects on film. In particular, the printing of the final 16mm projection copy, after filming, editing and sound processing, has become a very difficult phase in terms of time and financing. To solve these problems, we plan to develop tools to make a less expensive original copy.
