With Rose Kallal, Andrew Puls, Paul Clipson, John Davis, and Joshua Churchill in person

As classical frame-by-frame filmmaking — the art of plastic images, mechanical media interface, and live projected light — becomes increasingly anachronistic in mainstream festivals and movie halls, performance cinema — an ever-renewing, always present-tense live-art practice born of the ashes of twentieth-century industrial cinema — roars raging once again to center-stage! Apparent Motion, CROSSROADS’ centerpiece live event since 2011, celebrates this international phenomenon of sight and sound with a live, spatialized, multi-projector film/sound performance by Rose Kallal (New York), preceded by local master of analog video abstraction Andrew Puls, and — JUST ADDED — Spectrum States by Paul Clipson, John Davis, and Joshua Churchill.
