art of the past no longer exists as it once did. Its authority is lost.
In its place is a language of images. What matters now is who uses that
language for what purpose. The first of a two part evening at Emerson
College is a rare program of contemporary Super-8 work from TIE
exhibitions. My Mess
from Colorado-based filmmaker, Jesse Kennedy and work from Cine Parkour
are included in this program.The second program is a collection of 16mm
films from the U.S. and Austria.TIE curator, Christopher May will be
present to introduce the programs.
About Jesse Kennedy:
"If a writer could teach us how to read in a film, and a camera could
be used to shoot in the most visceral sense, then Kennedy with his
Super-8 camera and diverse medley of intellectual interests is
ferociously, sensually, and innovatively redefining how we portray and
experience the emotive blows of a story."
