AEMI Projections: Collectivism Part 3 @ IFI

The third of aemi's screening series on collectivism in cinema is devoted to the work of Experimental Film Society. From their website:

For the final part of this programme, 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.
