Roger Beebe: Films for One to Eight Projectors

Mon, Mar 19 2018 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm Free

Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (Harvard U)

The Film Study Center at Harvard University, Balagan Films, and the AgX Film Collective are pleased to welcome Ohio-based filmmaker Roger Beebe for an evening of new works on 16mm and video, as part of his first East Coast tour in seven years. “Films for One to Eight Projectors” features several premieres of new works alongside some of his best-known projector performances (including the six-projector show-stopping “Last Light of a Dying Star”), as well as recent award-winning work in single-channel HD video. These works take on a range of strategies from formalist investigations of the materiality of film to essayistic explorations of popular culture and topics ranging from the forbidden pleasures of men crying (“Historia Calamitatum (The Story of My Misfortunes)”) and the secret logic of the book of Genesis (“Beginnings”) to Las Vegas suicides (“Money Changes Everything”) and the real spaces of the virtual economy (“Amazonia”).
