About

Films for Ecstacy

Curated by Cassandra Davis

This screening takes the form of a collective viewing experience inspired by the installations of Pipilotti Rist. Works by Chicago-based filmmakers and artists are encouraged to be viewed at a slower pace while watching from the floor. Psychedelic soft pillows are available for the audience to lay on/cuddle with while watching a program of short films that intend to bring the viewer into a transcendental and ecstatic state. Do enjoy.

Folds of Existence

Programmed by Lorenzo Gattorna and Mary Ancel

Pre/Post-screening projections by Sean Benjamin

A screening series of contemporary moving image that mediates the precarious boundaries between public space and personal psyche. Ranging from the meditative and transcendent to the cacophonous and debaucherous, these layered realities attempt to reclaim timeworn ideologies, made manifest via social network dynamics, contested geopolitical histories, formulaic mass entertainment, ecstatic virtual imaginings and oscillating collective projections. This powerful compilation of works challenges the currency and potentiality of events, and points towards alternative aesthetics and modes of existence. The programs presented include short-form, feature-length, single-channel and installation-based works.
