  • Peephole Cinema: Hofreh

    By on

    The Peephole Cinema in San Francisco is proud to present “Hofreh” a collection of videos showcasing Iranian artists who live and work in the cities of Tehran, Isfahan, Tabriz and Khoramabad. The title of this show is a Persian word that translates to hole or cavity and also applies to the word for eye socket. It’s a fitting title for works that respond to the Peephole Cinema’s unique space: videos that loop inside a hole in a wall located street side on a building in the Mission District.

  • Chimera Project

    By on

    In this last year I have been developing a transmedia science fiction film project called Project Chimera, which addresses how to recover memory and feelings in a world that view them as outdated practices.

    In 2055, as a consequence of the technologization of life, a global government system applied a memory and feelings erasure device to facilitate order and generate the energy that posthuman communities need to live on the periphery of the large territories in which the world is divided.

  • Sudden Outbreaks #1-4 / Japanese Experimental Cinema

    By on

    A collaboration between Bozar and Cinema Parenthèse, this series of four events focuses on pioneering and prominent Japanese filmmakers and artists whose work has rarely, if at all, been shown in Belgium before. The programmes seek to present a wide range of audacious filmic practices with bold formal experimentation married to lyrical styles in works that lie on the margins of visual culture  during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

    Dates: 

    Saturday, November 23, 2019 (All day) to Sunday, November 24, 2019 (All day)

  • Cineinfinito #111: László Moholy-Nagy

    By on

    László Moholy-Nagy (Hungary, July 20, 1895 – November 24, 1946) was a Hungarian painter and photographer as well as a professor in the Bauhaus school. He was highly influenced by constructivism and a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts. A New York Times article called him “relentlessly experimental” because of his pioneering work in painting, drawing, photography, collage, sculpture, film, theater, and writing.

  • Movement and Handling: Selected Works from the LUX Collection

    By on

    Slides by Annabel Nicolson and Girish Shambu’s manifesto For a New Cinephilia are used as starting points from which to construct Movement and Handling, Selected Works from the LUX Collection. Nicolson’s fascination with fragments of older films and the transience of construction suggests a link with Shambu’s new cinephilia – a transient place between online and real-life.
