Jonathan Podwil Film Screening
Thursday, April 28, 2011, 6-8 PM
Please join us for a special screening of Jonathan Podwil's short films, in conjunction with the exhibition Jonathan Podwil: The Golden Age of Cinema. Podwil's films are frame-by-frame animations of super8 film and are made using hand held plastic models, shot from a tv screen, live action, or a combination all of these methods. They are usually shown as projections alongside paintings.
"...Podwil's method involves a painstaking manipulation of his materials, especially in his digitally animated loops, which reveal acts of distortion to the original footage. ... (The)violence of everyday life hovers in the air. The images show how the "blur" can give the most seemingly mundane pictures a threatening quality - demonstrating at the same time that media cross pollination is as rich in possibility as ever."
