Series programmed by Bernhard Fasenfest


Program 1: Rhythm (April 20, 7 PM) (Purchase Tickets)
(doors open 30 minutes before show time)

Emotive fragments, wayward gestures, and ephemeral music collide in the works of Abigail Child, Laure Prouvost, and Henry Hills. Expressive combinations of image, sound, and language fuse together and jolt in opposition, creating novel sensations and fractured narratives that expand the vocabulary of cinema.
