On March 26, 2014, the A/P/A Institute at NYU presented a guided tour through some of the most adventurous, formally innovative and unusual films and videos to emerge in the last year. Defying easy classification, these short, non-fictive works play at the intersection of forms–experimental, documentary, animation–to produce inquiries into how ideas can be structured and the material properties of what we look at and hear. Personal and popular archives, found artifacts, and light itself are our departure points.
Filmmakers Hey-Yeun Jang, Shambhavi Kaul, and Nina Yuen joined us for a post-screening conversation.
