VISIONS presents: Itinerant Spaces - The films of Stephen Connolly
Stephen Connolly’s work falls within the tradition of artists’ cinematic exploration of landscapes with a twist - his camera is interested in following the infrastructure of places to reveal their political plasticity. The work, shot on 16mm and more recently on digital, engages with the motion of people and places as metaphors for social forces slowing into form.
This screening will present a selection of short pieces made in places worldwide over the last ten years, culminating in a longer essay film exploring the desert promontory Zabriskie Point, site of the 1971 counter-culture feature by Michelangelo Antonioni.
Connolly will be in attendance for a Q&A and discussion following the program, moderated by Benjamin Taylor, Director of VISIONS Montreal.
16mm on digital | 75 minutes - filmmaker present.
