SHOW & TELL: KELLY SEARS, FERN SILVA, DAÏCHI SAÏTO
October 27 – December 10
Each of our quarterly calendars contains hundreds of films and videos all grouped into a number of series or categories. Along with preservation screenings, theatrical premieres, thematic series, and retrospectives, we’re equally dedicated to presenting work by individuals operating at the vanguard of non-commercial cinema. Each month we showcase at least one such program, focusing on moving-image artists who are emerging, at their peak, or long-established but still prolific. These programs are collected under the rubric SHOW & TELL, to emphasize the presence of the filmmakers at each and every program.
This calendar brings visits from experimental animator Kelly Sears; 16mm filmmaker Fern Silva, whose work combines documentary, ethnographic, and structuralist approaches; and Daïchi Saïto, filmmaker and co-founder of Montreal’s Double Negative collective.
