Slithering Screens is a special selection of original cinematic works that premiered in the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program over the past decade. Presented at MoMA on the occasion of the program’s 10th year, these works hack the cinema space itself by presenting stories that move from the silver screen onto the stage and into the hands, pockets, and homes of the audience. Featuring works by Lynette Wallworth, Yung Jake, Nao Bustamante, Miwa Matreyek, and the filmmaker/creative technologist duo James George and Jonathan Minard, Slithering Screens is an energetic mix of cinema-inspired performance, interactive documentary, and immersive media storytelling.
In addition to live experiences at MoMA, more than 10 virtual reality works will be made available on the Sundance VR app for Google Cardboard from April 25 to May 5. Limited artist-edition Cardboard VR goggles designed by Yung Jake will be given away to Slithering Screens attendees each night.
A special five-night Slithering Screens ticket package ($30 per person; free for members) is now available. (Please note that the ticket package does not include admission to the April 29 PopRally event.)
Organized by Shari Frilot, Chief Curator, New Frontier, Sundance Film Festival; and Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film, MoMA, with Sophie Cavoulacos, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film, MoMA.
