A Trio of Films That Examines Play Featuring the work of Stacey Steers, Charlotte Pryce, and Gina Kamestky Guest Curator: Laura Heit
A trio of films that carefully examines play; by reconfiguring, and relocating once discarded images, building layers, and creating new meaning. A hockey game is replayed using erasure and a lyrical hand painted line to examine the beauty and rhythm in this bloody sport. Another buries generations’ past evening entertainment in the garden and unearths new complex stories for bedtime. Colors unlike anything we relate to dirt, sublime in their secret history.

Godard proclaimed this at a turning point in his career – when he turned to alternative forms of cinema, alternative forms of authorship, alternative aesthetics. The consequences of such a shift in thought and action have continued relevance and demand further investigation. Is alternative film and video the preferred foundation for a political cinema to flourish?
As a filmmaker, curator, author and teacher, Birgit Hein is one of the most important names of the German experimental film. From the late 1960s to the late 1970s, with her then husband Wilhelm Hein, she made some of the most radical works within the so-called structuralist-materialist tradition, in which the film's illusory qualities were rejected and a study of its materiality was instead put in focus.
