Space is Lit: Recent Experimental Films (HCAF17)
Saturday, November 11, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
HOUSTON CINEMA ARTS FESTIVAL AT DIVERSEWORKS
Some spaces are illuminated by the sun. Some are lighted by a single bare bulb. Other spaces can be brought to light by a bright idea. The experimental films in this program are divergent in approach, but all engage with the space before the camera, as well as the place you’re sitting in to watch them.
This program will be followed by a Q&A with curator Michael Sicinski.
Free event – no tickets or Festival Badge necessary. Seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit Houston Cinema Arts Society for more information about the Festival.

Michael Sicinski writes film criticism for several publications, including Cinema Scope, The Nashville Scene, Cineaste, Cargo, Fandor, and Mubi, and occasionally teaches film and art history at the University of Houston. Sicinski has curated a program of important recent experimental films. Sicinski writes about Space is Lit, which includes films by celebrated film artists Kevin Everson and Jodie Mack, Mark Lewis, and Michael Robinson: “The experimental films in this program are divergent in approach, but all engage with the space before the camera, as well as the place you’re sitting in to watch them.”
