"Experimental film is undergoing a renaissance as more recent generations of avant-garde filmmakers are influenced by a new set of cultural and geographical alliances that differ from those of predecessors like Maya Deren, Kenneth Anger, and Andy Warhol." This program, curated specially for the ICA, presents innovative and poetic celluloid-based films by experimental artists from around the world. The screenings include works from New England filmmakers, Jonathan Schwartz and Saul Levine, who join TIE curator Christopher May for a post-screening discussion.. TIE is an internationally recognized cultural organization that is dedicated to experimental film and the inherent artistry of cinema. With an illustrious assemblage of avant-garde artists and films, TIE’s 2012 program provides insight into the enlightening experience that is experimental cinema.
