Curious Cinema Presents: Janie Geiser, Nancy Andrews, and Jodie Mack

 

Tuesday, February 25, 4:15–6:00 p.m.
Flaxman Library Special Collections, 37 S. Wabash Ave., suite 508

Janie Geiser's Immer Zu (1997) uses miniature two- and three-dimensional figures and sets, as well as shadow puppetry, to suggest the urgency of a nocturnal mission, a mission of life and death importance.

Nancy Andrews' Woods Marm (1997) is part school pageant, part vaudeville film presentation, part puppet production and part folk opera.

Jodie Mack's Point De Gaze (2012), named after a type of Belgian lace, is a fabric flicker film that investigates intricate illusion and optical arrest.

Curious Cinema is a monthly series of loosely programmed screenings from the extraordinary 16mm print collection in Flaxman Library Special Collections.
