Introduced by Todd Chandler
(Todd Chandler, 2013)
Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.
Flood Tide both documents and reimagines a real-life performance created by the street artist Swoon. A group of artists floated seven large sculptures down the Hudson River, and Chandler interweaves documentation of this journey with layers of fiction, mythology, and oral history. Music is an integral part of this program, both on-screen and off. Flood Tide features an all-original score by Minneapolis chamber pop band Dark Dark Dark (who played at the Wexner Center in 2011), as well as a special performance by renowned experimental musician Pauline Oliveros. The evening will start with three new short films by Chandler that will be accompanied by live music provided by Chandler and Marshall LaCount, who are both members of Dark Dark Dark.
