Born in Armenia in 1938 and trained at VGIK in the 1960s, Artavazd Peleshian has lived through the entire postwar Soviet period and its aftermath. Revered by filmmakers as an authentic genius of the seventh art and referenced in its histories as a “missing link” connecting the legacy of Soviet montage with more modern uses of the technique, Peleshian rests his reputation on 12 short films made between 1964 and 1993.

In June 2020, Luther Price (US), one of the most unique personalities prematurely left this world at the age of 58. His real name is unknown or at least unrevealed, Price purposely kept it secret “like a fairy-tale character would,” since his work is “rooted profoundly in the story of family and the traumatic events of his personal history.” Price's visceral work, in which pain, violence, eschatology, and transgression were singularly combined and transformed into healing acts, pure and moving, is the subject of this screening.
