  • IFI & AEMI Projections: Films By Peggy Ahwesh and Julie Murray

    AEMI and IFI present the film and video work of Peggy Ahwesh and Julie Murray. The programme examines the distinct and overlapping interests of two significant filmmakers, both of whom will be in attendance for the screening.

    Over several decades of practice Peggy Ahwesh has created one of the more heterogeneous bodies of work in the pantheon of experimental cinema. From early films shot on Super8 to recent forays into digital animation, Ahwesh’s work powerfully addresses questions of feminism, cultural identity and performance.

The pinhole films that she has selected to show here include a new two-screen configuration of West Window, East Window. Other films include pieces from her Cornish Knitting Pattern series, which document the coastal locations where the knitting patterns derive from. The patterns themselves dictate editing decisions.

  • LaborBerlin: Films by Steve Polta - We Live In Cities / Life Without Buildings

    LaborBerlin is proud to host Steve Polta, who will join us in person to present a screening of his films on Super 8 and 16mm.

    “Bay area artist Steve Polta, who has been producing a body of films, mostly on Super 8, over the past two decades that are as exquisitely nuanced as they are rarely seen. Each film presents a narrow window onto the ordinary world, prodded by subtle observation until it yields images of ethereal beauty.” (Rick Bahto: Echo Park Film Center)
