Experimental Response Cinema and the VAC come together to present a diverse group of screen works, all exploring a fundamental characteristic of cinema: movement. This curated collection featuring work by Maya Deren, Keewatin Dewdney, Vincent Grenier, Kerry Laitala, Ben Russell, Scott Stark, and David Wilson aims to "recall early mysteries of the quest" to investigate motion—as was said of Kerry Laitala’s work—and is drawn from over a sixty-year period. The screening presents both rare and acclaimed works of film and video, all wondrous and meditative. A brief presentation by and Q+A with curator Ekrem Serdar will follow the screening.
