The final program in a three-part series presenting personal visions of cinema’s potential as an artistic medium, “Intimate Projections,” features three internationally exhibited filmmakers whose meditative, insightful, and critical engagements with the diary form speak volumes about the aesthetic, political, and historical dimensions of this cinematic mode. From Peter Hutton’s lyrical reverie in the day-to-day to the charged, poetic feminism of Barbara Hammer’s Psychosynthesis Trilogy to Amy Siegel’s examinations of performed and projected identities in appropriated Youtube videos, the works presented in this program explore the vast reach of the diaristic gesture. The screening will be introduced by Howard Guttenplan and followed by a discussion with the artists.
Presented by the Millennium Film Workshop in partnership with The School of Media Studies and The New School for Public Engagement. The Millennium Film Workshop is a non-profit media arts center located on the Lower East Side.
