Black Box Shorts 2: Materials and Materiality

  • 84 mins

Exploring the physical properties of the filmstrip has been one of the most enduring concerns of experimental film history.

 Please note this screening may include strobe effects.

This approach becomes increasingly significant with the rise of digital filmmaking, which threatens to render celluloid obsolete. The films in this section all respond in some way to the digital revolution, either by celebrating and directly manipulating the celluloid material or by bringing old and new technologies into a creative fusion. From the material to the immaterial and back again.

Please note this screening may include strobe effects.
