A Matter of Visibility: International Avant-Garde and Artists’ Cinema


Introduced by guest curator Mónica Savirón 

Various artists. 1978–2015, 85 min. program., 16mm film and video. Organized by guest curator Mónica Savirón, this program presents New York and American premieres of strong new, experimental work in conversation with rarely seen works by avant-garde masters such as Lis Rhodes and Chantal Akerman. These artistic views have the ability to enhance our perception through symbolism, transformation, and a keen sense of creative freedom. Works include: Reportage ! (by Rei Hayama. Japan, 2015), Across (Cara Morton. Canada, 1997), Pixel Jungle (Klara Ravat. Spain/Germany, 2015), Cross Worlds (Cécile Fontaine. France, 2006), The Tower (Salomé Lamas. Portugal, 2015), Trois strophes sur le nom de Sacher (Chantal Akerman. France, 1989), Maschile, Roma (Friedl vom Gröller. Austria/Italy, 2015), Her Silent Seaming (Nazli Dinçel. U.S., 2014), Defenestration (Bea Haut. U.K., 2015), Nocturno (Naoko Sasaki. Canada, 2003), and Light Reading (Lis Rhodes. U.K., 1978).
