Lewis Klahr in person!

Lewis Klahr is β€œone of the most evocative, accessible, and culturally aware experimental filmmakers alive and working.” (Michael Atkinson, Village Voice) For almost thirty years, Klahr has reconfigured the detritus of postwar America into skip-beat riffs and dreamy meditations on the deferred promises of consumer culture. Tonight, Klahr presents two of his most recent multi-film series: the enigmatic and abstract Daylight Moon (A Quartet) (Valise [2004], Hard Green [2004], Soft Ticket [2004], Daylight Moon [2002]), and a thrice-told, fast-paced crime drama drawn from the pages of the comic β€œ77 Sunset Strip,” Three Minutes to Zero Trilogy (Two Days to Zero [2004], Two Hours to Zero [2004], Two Minutes to Zero [2003]). 2002-04, Lewis Klahr, USA, ca. 90 min, 16mm.
