*Something is seen but one doesn't know what*. 1986. USA. Directed by Keith Sanborn. Courtesy of filmmaker

Keith Sanborn will screen his 1980–88 film cycle KAPITAL!, a found-footage collage epic that includes performance and expanded cinema. These films forged a mode of experimental cinema that joined the formal and physiological experiments of high structural cinema with images sourced from what Sanborn has called the “consensual hallucinations” of the mass media.

Special thanks to Anthology Film Archives. Elements of KAPITAL! have been fully restored by Anthology Film Archives with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

This film accompanies Modern Mondays.
