Breath/Light/Birth: Spirituality in Experimental Cinema

THU, OCT 15 / 7:30 pm
Curated by Heidi Phillips
FREE ADMISSION

Panel discussion to follow with Heidi Phillips and Amanda Dawn Christie

The climate of contemporary film has grown comfortable in its absence of religious themes. However, when a film appears that asks any sort of question about God or even alludes to the possibility of a great power, it stands out. Dealing with these concepts of religion and spirituality in an artistic manner becomes daring in its infrequency. The films in the program were selected both from their use of content and their form. Not only is their thematic content important but also how they were made. They would all be described as experimental as the artist pays particular attention to how he/she uses their medium of choice, balancing both form and concept. – Heidi Phillips
