Journey from the Outside In: Ben Russell’s The Invisible Mountain + Shorts Program

Saturday, Oct 15, 2022 at 6:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

With Ben Russell in person

This program includes the U.S. premiere of Ben Russell’s new feature The Invisible Mountain (2021), plus a program of short films that served as inspiration for the film. A hallucinatory portrait of a man traveling from Finland to Greece in search of the utopian summit described in René Daumal’s 1952 novel Mount Analogue, a fictional mountain floating in the sea. Equal parts nonfiction cinema, concert film, road movie, and spiritual quest, The Invisible Mountain is accompanied by immersive musical performances from Finnish guitar trio Olimpia Splendid and American percussionist Greg Fox.

Shorts program includes:

La Soufrière (Werner Herzog. 1977, 30 mins. DCP. In German with English subtitles)

Brouillard—passage #14 (Alexandre Larose. 2014, 10 mins. 35mm)

Amazing Fantasy (Ana Vaz. 2018, 3 mins. 16mm-to-DCP)

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / discounted for MoMI members ($7–$11). Order online. All seating is general admission. Please review safety protocols before your visit.
