In April and May, Refle-x-périmental's screenings will honor the work of Ed Emshwiller, the first American filmmaker to deposit his films at the Paris Films Coop, in 1976. Best known for his pioneering work in the fields of video and computer-generated images, Ed Emshwiller has also produced numerous cine-dances, notably in collaboration with renowned choreographers Alwin Nikolais and Carolyn Carlson. In addition to his approach to dance as a metaphor for the energies that animate and circulate in the universe, his work also takes on a cosmogonic, even ecological dimension, in which a multiplicity of subjective experiences of the world interweave.
