Michael Snow, 2002
Area and regional premieres, films fresh from the international film festival circut, award-winners and recent audience favorites...films you won't see anywhere else in central Ohio.
"The crowning achievement of North America's greatest living experimental filmmaker. It's a kind of playful and comic encyclopedia of all things digital video can do. The best film of 2002!
--Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Its joyous, imaginative air, its effortless attention to all that is wonderful and horrible and comical about modern technology . . . makes you want to jump up and shout for joy."--Variety
Avant-garde master Michael Snow has received unprecedented mainstream praise for Corpus Callosum (92 mins.), a feature-length video that melds live action with digital animation to stunningly unprecedented and amusing effect.
The title refers to the region in the brain once thought to be where a human's soul resides, and the film itself explores realms well beyond the purely physical.
Set in a suite of offices where shape-mutating workers interact, the film's "wanton slipperiness and its amiable jerking and reshaping of physical time and space" make for a remarkably entertaining introduction to "video as art" (New York Times). (92 mins.)
