The distinguished French experimental filmmaker Rose Lowder will attend this screening of her work, including "Parcelle," "Champ Provencal" and "Beijing 1988."
From the L.A. Filmforum website:
Rose Lowder is one of Europe's most influential and celebrated cinematic treasures -- a filmmaker and scholar who first trained as a painter and sculptor, then later studied with filmmaker Jean Rouch. Since 1977 she has made over fifty experimental films, many of them shot frame-by-frame in rural Europe. Whether filming the view from her Avignon window, the French countryside, or centuries-old structures, Lowder composes highly charged, multiple-perspective mosaics that explore nature's visual wonders and the underlying ecology of specific places.This is the first installment of a three-part series. Part 2 is at Redcat on Nov. 5, and Part 3 is at Cal Arts on Nov. 6.
