Experimentals Tuesdays: Short films by Amir George

UWM Union Cinema 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI

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.
