Special Screening: Andrew Noren’s Free to Go

May 2, 2005


Free To Go. 2003. USA. Directed by Andrew Noren

Free to Go (Interlude). 2003. USA. Directed by Andrew Noren. Noren has been making moving-image art for over 40 years, and is perhaps cinema’s greatest practitioner of light, shadow, visual texture, and velocity. His recent digital work celebrates the primal nature of vision and the mind’s construct of duration: “Intuitive conjuring and orchestration of retinal phantoms, refined by abstraction into music for light and mind… in three ‘movements’” (Noren). (The third movement, titled “5th and 53rd,” was recently on view in The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Gallery.) 62 min.

Monday, May 2, 8:00. T2

Organized by Mary Lea Bandy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator, Department of Film and Media.
