For the final edition of our three-part programme on Collectivism as it relates to contemporary film practices, aemi is proud to present a selection of works by members of the Experimental Film Society. The programme develops out of a series of conversations with core members of EFS addressing the role of the collective in constructing a productive understanding of what cinema can be made and what it can say and do. Drawing upon the speculative logic of science fiction, a regular presence in many of the works screening here, cinema is re-articulated as a heterogeneous space which “can contain all galaxies and forms of life, even ones we can sense but can’t fully comprehend.”
Curated by Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick. Please see this month’s Irish Focus strand where EFS filmmaker Max Le Cain’s work also features.
Experimental Film Society (EFS) is an independent, not-for-profit entity specializing in avant-garde, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. It was founded in 2000 in Tehran by Rouzbeh Rashidi and has been based in Dublin since 2004. Please see http://www.experimentalfilmsociety.com/ for further details.
