Artist and filmmaker Laida Lertxundi presents the New York premiere of her film 025 Sunset Red (2016), along with a survey of earlier films, including Cry When It Happens (2010), A Lax Riddle Unit (2011), The Room Called Heaven (2012), We Had the Experience but Missed the Meaning (2014), and Vivir para Vivir/Live to Live (2015). Working in 16mm film, Lertxundi combines filmic records of people and places with a strong emphasis on sound and pop music, resulting in languid passages of cinematic language, bodily desire, and existential awareness. Lertxundi's cinema of feeling has become one of the most influential bodies of film work to emerge since the 2000s. The screening is followed by a conversation between Lertxundi and Giampaolo Bianconi, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art.
