IMAGINING BACKWARDS | A Conversation with Experimental Filmmaker Lili White
Friday, July 19, 2019 – Program begins at 3:30pm
There is no cost for admission.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium is proud to present a public dialogue with artist and experimental filmmaker Lili White.

Since 1978 Lili has been exploring origins of myth, primacy of memory, exercises in self and counter self-imagining, and dreaming through her work with 8mm film, 16mm film, sound, and video. She is a fixture in the history of avant-garde filmmaking, and throughout her career she has maintained a dedication to experimental work created by women filmmakers. FVPS will screen several short works by White while delving into topics that include in-camera editing, “automatic” editing, and authentic movement technique. We will examine reoccurring elements in images found in her films and talk about the importance of production audio and color. Our program will screen and discuss the following work:

· EVERYTHING, BUT (d. Lili White, U.S., 2006)
· I CHING TRIGRAM: MOUNTAIN BOUND (d. Lili White, U.S., 2006)
· CRACKED (d. Lili White, U.S., 2006)
· GOOD BYE EARTH, GOODBYE SKY (d. Lili White, U.S., 2006)

From CRACKED by Lili White
