A pioneer of experimental cinema, the Los Angeles artist Pat O’Neill developed innovative techniques for radically altering imagery in the predigital era. His highly inventive 16mm films from the 1960s and 1970s explore dense layering and movement within a still frame. In recent years, O’Neill has reworked several of his early films into multiple projections.

Obscuritads is an international filmmaking collective formed by artists who “want to make visible the invisible by focusing on the oscillations between the soul and the stars, the moon, the tides, what is pure in what is raw. Light and darkness are the main characters in their films.”
