Location: Bartos Screening Room

Members only event 

Join us for a screening of experimental films, documentary shorts, and music videos directed by Museum of the Moving Image staff members. Take a break with us on our employees’ day of rest as we reflect on our artistic practices and how the creation of our films and videos relate to our work in the Museum. With introductions by filmmakers, the program includes vibrant, lively music videos by Evan Deng and Lauren Komer; curious documentaries about artists by Joe Stankus and Yukiyo Yokoyama; as well as beautiful and dramatic depictions of family relationships in Pepita Sandwich’s Hola Tesoro and Leonardo Santana-Zubieta’s Sleepless Eyes.
