8mm Experimental Cinema is a unique program composed of eight short films that exhibit a wide variety of contemporary 8mm practices. The contributing artists use a number of different methods to explore the small format's materialistic and imaginative latitude. This includes direct filmmaking, organic decay, impressionistic shooting methods, and other modes of formal experimentation. The presentation will consist of digital and super 8mm projections.
Lynne Sachs, Lorenzo Gattorna and Erica Sheu will be present for a brief Q&A following the screening.
This international program brings together archival prints of forgotten films never shown in New York before and new countercurrent voices. Avant-garde artists Don Levy, Philippe Cote, and Ute Aurand share the screen with a new generation of makers whose works explore and embody exemplary fights for different forms of freedom. “On Resistance” includes a World premiere, five North American, two U.S., and four New York premieres, from fifteen different countries.
