10/18 Screening and Talk - Movement Exercises


On Film is excited to present a screening of Sarah Friedland’s Movement Exercises trilogy, in collaboration with the Dance and Movement Program and the Art & Art History Department, sponsored by Film and Media Studies. The screening takes place on October 18th at 6pm in Hoyt Auditorium (Hoyt 104), River Campus.

Sarah Friedland is a choreographer and film-maker working at the intersection of moving images and moving bodies. Through hybrid and experimental filmmaking, multi-channel video installation, and site-specific live dance performance, she stages and scripts bodies and cameras in concert with one another to elucidate and distill the undetected, embodied patterns of social life and the body politic. Compelled by the blurry threshold between the aesthetics and structures of documentary and fiction filmmaking, her works embrace hybridity, co-opting and adapting the forms of newsreel footage, home workout videos, social guidance, corporate instructional, and genre films.

The total running time for the films is 63 minutes with a short introduction and a post-screening talk with the artist. Food and drinks will be provided. The event is free and no RSVP required.
