Film Programs
Affinities, or The Weight of Cinema
An Affinity for Collage

January 14 at 5:30
East Building Auditorium
Dirk de Bruyn in person

Assembling elements from the archive, films in this program gain shape from collision and multiplication. “This particular affinity is closely related to the readymade and functions as a complication and extension of the former” — Greg de Cuir. Works include A Saturday Night in Mansfield, Ohio (Everson, 2015), Reckless Eyeballing (Christopher Harris, 2004), WAP (Dirk de Bruyn, 2012), and Songs for Earth and Folk (Cauleen Smith, 2013) among others. (Total running time 69 minutes)
