Experimental film is independent cinema - free of industrial, commercial, and formulaic norms - it seeks to explore new ways of seeing and experiencing motion pictures. The Film & Media Studies program in conjunction with Professor Jeremy Moss' Experimental Film course (TDF371) invites Martha Colburn, an internationally celebrated filmmaker to present a range of provocative, contemplative, and illuminating works.
Working out of New York City and Holland and traveling the world to lecture and showcase her films, Martha has developed a unique aesthetic style all her own, focusing on stop-motion animation and collage art. Her works have garnered countless awards and appeared prominently in such places as the Cannes Film Festival, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Sundance Film Festival. Recently she has received particular interest from European museums, which she has frequented to promote and discuss her artform.
Please join Martha Colburn at F&M for a screening of several of her films. It will surely be an unforgettable experience. A moderated question-and-answer discussion with Martha will follow her showcase.

This event is open to the public.
