Transient Visions: Festival of the Moving Image was established in 2013. It celebrates the cutting edge art of the moving image through screenings, exhibitions, performances, and other festival events, providing a cultural experience that enriches the local community. The Festival works as a venue to meet artists in this region and beyond, exchanging and sharing ideas, while developing mutual relationship.
Witness this new batch of wild, weird, transgressive and experimental short films by the new wave of underground filmmakers. The emotions range from funny to touching to creepy, and each film rejects convention in it's own way. Come to LA's Arts District to find out what's been brewing in Hollywood's dark dark shadow.
VISIONS, in collaboration with Main Film, presents THE AFTERLIGHT by Charlie Shackleton, a film that itself exists as a single 35mm film print. Further eroding every time it screens, the film is a living document of its life in circulation. Eventually it will disappear entirely.
On the 19th of May at 7pm at la lumière collective
