Troubling the Image: Landscapes of Light

No votes yet

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.

Landscapes of Light features works about place that alternate between close observations of the everyday and more expansive and dislocated views of the world. This program is anchored by two beautiful films by Dane Komljen, Our Body (2015) and All Still Orbit (2016; co-directed by James Lattimer), that imbue place with tenuous histories, personal and political. Arash Nassiri’s Tehran-geles (2015) is a nocturnal flight around the buildings of Tehran, a disorienting view of lights, commercial structures, and signage that could double for Times Square or Las Vegas. Also showing are Peter Hutton’s Boston Fire (1979), Julie Murray’s Distance (2010) and Joana Pimenta’s An Aviation Field (2016). Onscreen preshow is Lois Patiño’s video Strata of the Image (2015).

Curated by Julia Gibbs and Patrick Friel.
