Bageroo Program #1: We Were, We Are, We Will Be
Friday, July 28, 2023
Starts at 8:00pm

In this shorts program, filmmakers reflect on themselves, their surroundings, and others around them. These shorts recall the beginnings of small-gauge filmmaking, in which filmmakers relied on the format to document their memories, their lineages, and their familial relationships. These shorts connect each other through the lens of documentation, sentiment and provenance.

With films by Louise Noguchi, Kourtney Jackson, Sofia Perez Tudela, Tom Taylor, Eduardo Gutiérrez Carrera, Josh Weissbach, Samy Benammar, and Gerald Saul.

Bageroo #3: Tactile Musings
Saturday, July 29, 2023
Starts at 8:30pm

Delving into the world of physicality and technique, this program focuses on the materiality of film, working within its celluloid limitations to create something beyond imagination.

With films by Lina Wu, Álvaro Feldman, Alize Zorlutuna, Robbie Land, Giacomo Manzotti, Joanna Decc, and a live projection by Blaine Spiegel.
