Our mission is threefold: To bring rarely-seen and important films from around the world. To show films in 16mm or 35mm prints and encourage discussion about the materiality as well as the contents of the films. To facilitate informal discussions about these films and offer an opportunity for students, faculties, and the communities to experience the films as an event. Each of our sessions has a theme (walls, landscape, etc.). By showing diverse sets of films back to back, we hope to facilitate the chance to encounter movies both as singular objects in their own right and at the same time to make unexpected discoveries about the ways in which they might co-inform, both on the level of sameness and difference, and in terms of their material, formal, and narrative conditions.
