Directors Lounge presents:a summer evening with

june 15th 9pm at Z Bar

Emotional exiles from the Land of Opportunity, experimental filmmakers Ben Russell and Jonathan Schwartz come to Europe on the first leg of their infinite world tour equipped with 16mm films, vocal distortion effects and optical sound tracks, these kindred spirits engage in a kino-cartography of the audiovisual contract. Through a combination of psychedelic cinema, mash-up animations, ethnographic mask ceremonies, and pinhole lenses these two intrepid explorers map out a new world of image and sound where vision travels in waveforms and sound flickers like explosions in the night.
Ben Russell will be available for Q&A after the screening.

"One of the strangest films I have ever seen, it´s characters come and go as if they are "primitives" posing for the camera, either obeying or fighting an ethnographers controlling eye." Fred Camper

"For the prevention of violence, check the manual, it might die in the seventies, or I was wondering if sincerity could battle irony"
