New York FIlm Festival 2015 Projections Program 3
A DISTANT EPISODE- A film by Ben Rivers, one of my least favorite directors. A black and white film shot around a film being shot in Morocco giving the appearance of long ago events. Meh. Its suppose to mystical it just looks like random movie rushes with a weird soundtrack.
IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE- a burning boat gives way to miners waking in the dark. I started to nod off...
HALF HUMAN HALF VAPOR- lots of black screen with an occasional image. I fell sleep
OCCIDENTE- A cinematic poem about ecology. While I didn't particularly care for it, I found it to be a breath of fresh air because it actually felt like it was made by a director trying to do more than coast- which is how I felt about the other films in this collection.
YOLO- filmed in the remains of a cinema a bunch of kids fart around with the camera. Very much not my cup of tea
I was not given access to AH HUMANITY!
The collection plays October 2 & 3. For tickets and more information go here
