Cine Soiree! Avant-Garde Short Films at the Morbid Anatomy Museum
The Morbid Anatomy Museum welcomes you to indulge the cinematic senses in this spectral séance upon the screen in a short film program selected by Resident Film Programmer and Arcane Media Specialist and New School Professor Joel Schlemowitz. From the cine-magic of Melies to Brakhages seminal work shot in the Pere-Lachaise Cemetery of Paris to Marie Losiers mermaids and bird-creatures prowling through Lisbons Museu Nacional de História Natural we will journey through a curious, macabre, and optically plangent filmic underworld. The film itself becomes a spectral phenomenon with images glimpsed in moldering black and white negative, superimposed in rhapsodic abandon, shuffled in flipbook-like pattering.
Local filmmakers will be present for a question and answer session following the program. Melies will make his presence felt throughout the program.
The filmmakers are: Peggy Ahwesh Collections / Stan Brakhage The Dead / Bradley Eros and Jeanne Liotta Dervish Machine / Lisa Hammer Empire of Ache / Anna Kipervaser Myth / Jeanne Liotta Maria Movie / Marie Losier L’oiseau de la nuit / Jeromey Martinez Genesis / Georges Melies The Monster
Date: Tuesday, December 13th
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY
