Early Avant Garde Films

When: Sat., Feb. 20, 8-10 p.m. 2016

This program includes historically significant films by European artists working between world wars, who were struggling against the restrictions of classical art to re-define the role of the artist in modern society. Dada and Surrealist artists in particular began using the “new” form of cinema to experiment visually and sonically, and in doing so pushed filmmaking far beyond traditional narrative boundaries, cutting a new edge in artistic discourse.
