EXPERIMENTS IN CINEMA v17.2
Albuquerque, NM, USA
May 9-23, 2022
Online : www.experimentsincinema.org
Festival Director: Bryan Konefsky
Experiments in Cinema is an annual, transnational festival celebrating the current trends and history of international cinematic experimentation. Experiments in Cinema is a non-competitive festival produced by Basement Films. This year we are celebrating our 17th anniversary with a host of unique screenings (100 films from 30 countries). The goal of Experiments in Cinema is to bring the international community of moving image artists to New Mexico to then inspire a new generation of movie makers to recognize the value of their media-voices and create films in ways we never imagined possible. This year the festival will also be hosting special performances, lectures, workshops and presentations.
Made possible with the generous support of The National Endowment for the Arts, New Mexico Arts, The New Mexico Humanities Council, The McCune Charitable Foundation, The Albuquerque Film Office, UNM’s Department of Film And Digital Arts, Instituto Cervantes, and the Albuquerque Community Foundation!
A simple video work about maybe a bit hackneyed message. About a group of people with different culture backgrounds are waiting for the train. The train arrives and they start their journey. However during the journey the train encounters an obstacle.The rail is broken. All the passengers and the machinist leave the train looking at the rail and try to repair it. Finally they succeed in fixing the rail and the train can continue it’s journey. At the beginning they do not know each other, but through a problem they begin all work together, regardless of their culture background, status, colour or gender.
