Mono No Aware would like to invite you to join us for a special screening presentation with friend and film historian Stephen Broomer. Come and see a selection of inspiring 16mm films created over the last 5 years. These moving images will follow a surface treatment workshop led by the artist where he'll share some of his surface techniques with participants. This is a unique opportunity to share the workspace with this artist from Toronto and also experience his films in person. Broomer's work has screened at Views from the Avant-Garde, TIFF Wavelengths, the Berlin Directors Lounge and is the subject of a new release by Ottawa: Canadian Film Institute * Institut canadien du film, a collection of essays edited by Scott Birdwise and Tom McSorley, entitled "The Transformable Moment: The Films of Stephen Broomer." 2014.

Discussion with the filmmaker // Q & A

"Every moment possesses the power to transform itself. In its stagnant chronology, its fixed coordinate, it changes. By memory and by history, time transforms itself. We use film to alter the moment, to cradle the moment, to annihilate the moment, or at least its impression, and by these operations, the image bears out the mystical associations of consciousness. The transformable moment is the moment turning into both its opposite and its other, and meaning arises in the gap between opposition and otherness. By this transformation, the moment departs from the assurances of memory and becomes a breathing passage." - Stephen Broomer.

This event is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council
