Cinema Babylon at The Front
Outdoor Screening at The Front GalleryBackyard at The Front 4100 St Claude Ave. Rain location: Press Street HQ 3718 St. Claude Ave.
Cinema Babylon is a program of shorts by emerging artist who are exploring both the tropes and excesses of narrative form, and the unraveling structure of avant garde film. Influenced by filmmakers such as George Kuchar, Kenneth Anger, Lewis Klahr, and Ericka Beckman, many of these films remain unseen for being both too narrative and too experimental. This screening is an opportunity to showcase works that abandon the confines of narrative cause and effect for the tenuous logic of a dream.
With support from the Millenium Film Workshop in NYC, Cinema Babylon will tour across the United States in September 2014 in an effort to bridge together like minded film communities, and to spark a discourse about new young talent.
