As part of its Dialogue series, VISIONS presents:
THE PEAK EXPERIENCE (Programme by Leslie Supnet) February 15, 2018
From the website:
“The Peak Experience brings together a selection of my works with experimental animations from Sebastian Di Trolio’s extensive film collection. With an archive of film prints that is ever expanding, Sebastian has been collecting and saving 16mm prints often destined for obscurity. Within his living archive is a treasure-trove of animated jems from North America and beyond. The animated works in this programme include works by some of my favourite artists who have expanded the notion of animation beyond the traditional, melding material innovation, narrative investigation and a passion for the avant-garde. Screening with these works are recent experimental animations of my own, and a premiere of my newest work”. – Leslie Supnet
