Experimental Cinema

Dates: February 15 and 22, March 11, April 4, May 13 and June 13, 2020

An introductory approach to the history of experimental cinema through which to discover the main milestones, the most influential currents and some of the most radically free filmmakers of this anti-industrial, imperfect, imaginative, sensory and playful cinema.

Cinema Without a Camera

Dates: February 19, March 21, April 22 and June 17, 2020

There is no need for a camera to make a film. The works of Man Ray, Len Lye or Stan Brakhage prove that the artistic exploration of the possibilities of the cinematographic medium exceed the act of filming. Either through direct animation, in the case of Norman McLaren, or by darkroom work and manual contact printing, like Peter Tscherkassky, this group of films bring both technical and expressive innovations.
