The School of Media Studies invites you to a special screening of “Daisies” (1966) by Vera Chitylova, Elizabeth Lo’s compelling documentary short “Hotel 22” (2014) and “I Remember Nothing” (2015) by Zia Anger which will be introduced and followed by discussion with the filmmaker herself.

Kinoscope is a screening series sponsored by the School of Media Studies, aiming to enhance the awareness and understanding of the film and filmmaking process by screening a wide variety of national and international films. Pawel Wieszczecinski, Kinoscope’s programmer and producer and Media Studies Faculty member Marcus Turner will discuss the film after the presentation.

A reception with food and beverages will follow the screening.

About “Daises” (1966): Maybe the New Wave’s most anarchic entry, Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.

About “Hotel 22” (2014): Each night in Silicon Valley, a public bus transforms into an unofficial shelter for the homeless. Hotel 22 captures a single, dramatic night on the Line 22 route. As the bus hurtles through one of the richest parts of the world, it carries all the lives that have been displaced and disregarded by Silicon Valley. The story captured by this single ride is a claustrophobic mirror to the painful and profound inequities of what it means to live in America today.

About “I Remember Nothing” (2015): A student, unaware that she is epileptic, tries to get through another day. The film is structured in five sections, after the phases of a seizure.
