  • Underground: 16mm films by Emmanuel Lefrant

    Microscope Gallery is happy to welcome Paris-based filmmaker Emmanuel Lefrant to the gallery for a special screening of his works on film. The program Underground — which is also the title of Lefrant’s first film and an indication of where most of his filmmaking takes place, literally or figuratively — features eight short films spanning fifteen years, nearly the artist’s complete filmography.

  • Xcèntric Cinema: Jonas Mekas. You keep a diary & the diary will keep you

    We celebrate Jonas Mekas’ work with one of his great diary-films, shot between 1969 and 1984: portraits of his community of artist and filmmaker friends (Rossellini, Anger, Warhol, Frampton, Lennon…), about “places, seasons of the year, climates (storms, snow, blizzards), streets and parks in New York, brief escapes to natural areas, nothing special, minor celebrations held over the years, up until now, and that are retained as a record in these short and personal sketches" (Mekas).

  • Freeze-Frame, a Vanitas of Light

    'Freeze-Frame, a Vanitas of Light' investigates in what form film can exist without the physical presence of film. The starting point is the local history of Wetteren, where in the 1960s were four cinemas; Cinema Roxy, Cinema Nova, Cinema Max and Cinema Forum. The socialists, liberals and Catholics, each had their own cinema and one was there for the 'naughty' films. Now that these cinemas have disappeared from the street scene, the question remains whether the cinematic is still present in Wetteren, or can be, and how an idea of film can exist without actually being present as a film.
