March 5, 2024 (7–9 p.m.)UWM Union Cinema

Join us for an evening of short films by Amir George who will also be in attendance at the screening.

Amir George creates spiritual stories, juxtaposing sound and image with a non-linear perception. He creates fragmented vignettes that conjure the secret life of objects both found and collected. The characters that inhabit his stories tend to dwell outside of social norms and exist in the space between and in the process of becoming. Amir’s short films have screened at film festivals including  BlackStar Film Festival, Rockaway Film Festival and Camden International Film Festival, as well as cultural institutions, including  Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Moma PS1; Royal College of Art; Museum of Contemporary Arts, Los Angeles; and Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit.

Experimental Tuesdays is a weekly screening series that features the most celebrated work of contemporary and historical artist-made film and video. The series seeks to present films and artists that explore the creative and critical potential of moving images. This series amplifies marginalized voices by hosting artists that represent diverse populations, such as LGBT, Native American, Black and Latinx artists. Hosted by the Department of Film, Video, Animation & New Genres, and presented in partnership with UWM’s Union Cinema, this series is a bedrock of the Milwaukee arts landscape. Experimental Tuesdays has recently hosted the work of Silvia das Fadas, Courtney Stephens, Simon Liu, Helena Wittman, Jessica Bardsley, Suneil Sanzgiri, Mary Helena Clark, Angelo Madsen Minax, and Rhayne Vermette to name a few. This screening series is free and open to the public. 

Tickets are not required for this FREE event.
