Viva Photofilm

Friday, May 18, 2012, 4:00 p.m.

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Featuring a wide range of work spanning several decades, Viva Photofilm looks at how photographs, when placed in a cinematic context, can create a filmic experience. Photofilms deconstruct cinema into single frames, language, sound, and music. Taking each element as an independent component, the photofilm is consciously assembled in a playful way to become a projected reality.

Find more information about VivaPhotoFilm part 1 at the Goethe Institut website. 

Viva Photofilm parts 2 through 6 will be screened from July 12 to 15 at YBCA's screening room.
