Experimental Tuesdays at the Union Cinema: Assorted Morsels: Films by Amy Halpern

February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm CST

Experimental Tuesdays at the Union Cinema: Assorted Morsels: Films by Amy Halpern
Amy Halpern was the maker of nearly forty short films, almost all in 16mm, and of the feature
 film FALLING LESSONS (1991). Halpern was born and raised in New York City and lived and worked in Los Angeles for more than 40 years. Amy’s films are abstract in their concern with light, movement and the film medium, but they are also human in their elements and themes. The idea which persists throughout her work is that of liberation – from social, political, psychological, perceptual and even bodily constraints. All films are presented on 16mm, courtesy of Canyon Cinema.

Experimental Tuesdays is a weekly screening of artist-made film/video work from around the world, programmed by the Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres, which celebrates the creative possibilities of cinema as an art form. Variously referred to as “experimental,” “underground,” or “avant-garde,” the filmmakers presented in this series work in a truly independent fashion and their work pushes beyond the boundaries of mainstream convention. XT regularly features visiting artists, curated programs of contemporary short films, and 16mm prints from the UWM Cinema Arts Archive. Please check the Union Cinema website for specific details.
