From the Archives: Chronic
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Experimental Tuesdays at the Union Cinema presents…
From the Archives:
Tonight’s program will showcase Jennifer Reeves’s experimental, semi-autobiographical narrative, Chronic. Chronic follows the life of a young woman who begins to self-mutilate to cope with her traumatic childhood and adolescence. Accompanied by Reeves’s The Girl’s Nervy and Kerry Laitala’s Orbit.
Films — all 16mm prints — were selected from the Cinema Arts Archive, of the UWM Department of Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres, by curator Ariel Teal, a MFA Candidate in the Department.
