COLLECTIVISM (PART 3): Films by Experimental Film Society

4 May 2016 / 6.30pm / Irish Film Institute

aemi is proud to present a selection of works by artists and filmmakers from the Experimental Film Society. The programme develops out of a series of conversations with core members of EFS addressing the role of the collective in constructing a productive understanding of what cinema can say and do. There is no single unifying factor connecting the work of individuals associated with the collective but Rouzbeh Rashidi does direct us toward the active possibility of catastrophe and the unknowable. Drawing upon the speculative logic of science fiction, a regular presence in many of the works screening here, cinema is re-articulated as a more heterogeneous space which “can contain all galaxies and forms of life, even ones we can sense but can’t fully comprehend.”

We are pleased to welcome filmmakers Rouzbeh Rashidi, Michael Higgins, Jann Clavadetscher, Dean Kavanagh, Max Le Cain, Vicky Langan and Atoosa Pour Hosseini to take part in a discussion after the screening
