Disrupting the apparatus; challenging conventions of spectatorship; the space between the black box and the white cube; what even is Expanded Cinema?


This workshop will explore the foundations of expanded cinema and film performance, while giving an intro to the basics of working with 16mm film and analog projection. Over three classes, participants will develop their own short performance projects, with an emphasis on utilizing analog materials, followed by an informal screening for friends and family at the end. No previous knowledge of 16mm filmmaking or experience with performance is required.
