As part of our Guest curator series we welcome
Dane Haiken as he presents
FILMS ON DUALITY & DIALOGUE.
“Sooner or later, every filmmaker goes back to scenes like this: two people, in a room, talking… It’s scenes like this that tell you what they really care about.” – Tony Zhou, Every Frame A Painting
A shorts collection on that most elemental feature of film grammar: the duet. Two characters talking, the audience gaming out what each one wants, how they will get it, and whether they got it. Join guest programmer Dane Haiken in exploring variations and abstractions on the theme of duality through seven local short films.
