Laida Lertxundi and Michael Robinson Introduce Short Films
Circle in the Sand
(Michael Robinson, 2012)
Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.
Join Laida Lertxundi and Michael Robinson—recipients of the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s first-ever award to experimental filmmakers (the Kazuko Trust Scholarship Award Grant)—for a screening of their rigorous and emotional films.
Lertxundi (“the 2012 Whitney Biennial’s most significant discovery,” according to the Nation) starts the evening with five shorts exploring languor and yearning against the backdrop of Los Angeles and its environs. Robinson, whose work has frequently been featured at the Wex, follows with Circle in the Sand, the project he completed as a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award recipient for 2011–12. His most ambitious film to date, it chronicles a band of female prisoners rummaging through leftovers of American culture in the aftermath of a civil war. (app. 100 mins., video)
