An experiment in collective filmmaking and speculative collaboration featuring dozens of artists from across the globe!

Seattle-based filmmaker and EXcinema founder Salise Hughes commissioned twenty-one international experimental filmmakers spread across four continents to create a short works, resulting in a feature-length film set in North America, Europe, South America and Asia. Employing the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse) technique invented by the surrealists, the filmmakers wove together a single story by relying on “prompts” for the beginning and ending of their contribution that were supplied to them in advance. The result is a playful experimental road movie in which the closing images of one work also signal the opening of a work created by another artist somewhere else in the world.

To poke around that collage corpus a bit more, ten Chicago artists have been drawn into the exquisite experiment to create a lean dream version of the same.

Tonight, the Chicago version makes its world premiere and the world version makes its Chicago premiere.

THE SPACES BETWEEN CITIES features Pip Chodorov, Charles Chadwick, Kate Lain, Amy Bassin & Mark Bickley, Reed O’Beirne, Konstantinos-Antonios Goutos, Stephen Broomer, Salise Hughes, Douglas Katelus, Blanca Rego, Arto Polus, Robert Zverina, Margaret Rorison,Dustin Zemel, Ben Popp, Insa Langhorst, Anna Kipervaser, Pablo Molina Guerrero, Milan Milosavljevic and Jesse Malmed.

FIRE AFTER THE SUN

Five Videomakers from Mexico City

Tlate1

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, August 19th, 7:30 pm, $7-10


Fire After the Sun
presents the work of five videomakers from Mexico City addressing the legacy of delusionment/disillusionment after history, anecdotes around collective catastrophes, and deconstructions of national symbols.

The program creates a  dialogue between the antagonistic perspectives and conceptual coincidences between the different works. Originally they were all created as video installations. Thus they challenge the mono channel projection by creating non-linear narratives, departing from fiction and nonfiction film strategies through selected media archeologies and techniques.
