Fiona Tan: Footsteps

In this video installation drawn exclusively from films made between 1896 and the late 1920s, Tan pairs mesmerizing moments of people working over a century ago—sewing fishing nets, harvesting wheat, collecting chicken eggs, sorting oysters—with missives from her Australia-based father, read aloud by Scottish actor Ian Henderson.

The Big Lebowski

The Coen brothers’ funniest film is a scene-to-scene blast, expertly folding an endless array of visual jokes and verbal gags into an absurdly convoluted plot that casts Jeff Bridges's unemployed, eternally stoned Los Angeles bowling bum Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski as a loser Philip Marlowe.
