IE EXPERIMENTS: SHORT FILMS FROM INLAND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
March 9, 2019 –
On March 9, 2019 experience IE Experiments: Short Films from Inland Southern California, which explores the ways in which filmmakers and artists have discovered and experienced Inland Southern California.
IE Experiments is anchored by Stan Brakhage's 1976 experimental short Desert, a film centered on Riverside, CA subverting the filmmaker's expectation of finding a desert landscape but discovering a suburban landscape.
The program explores subsequent filmic encounters artists have had with the region and the various expectations that were met or upended. The program will include works by Kate Alexandrite, Nathan Bockelman, Anna Wittenberg, Paul Kelley, Terry Chatkupt, Dicky Bahto, and Olivia Leiter. Several of the filmmakers will be present for a Q&A!
Desert screened on 16mm, all other works screened digitally.
This event is free and open to the public. The Gallery Tour starts at 2:00 p.m. followed by the screening at 3:00 p.m.
Programming in conjunction with the exhibition In the Sunshine of Neglect, a joint exhibition held concurrently at the California Museum of Photography at UCR ARTS & Riverside Art Museum. Catalogue published by Inlandia Institute.
