The fantastically curated TIE collection is returning to the Ross this Wednesday & Thursday. The past two years, Lincoln has been blessed with great programs and presentation from Christopher May, TIE's curator. This year should be no exception:
Since 2000, the internationally-based TIE festival has been a leading champion of artists still working in the medium of film, with a particular focus on both new and historical avant-garde cinema. TIE returns to UNL with two new programs specifically selected for The Ross by TIE founder/director Christopher May. The exhibition features an eclectic range of experimental films that illuminate the continuing vitality and beauty of celluloid, while subtle and at times obvious philosophical and thematic curatorial gestures conduct the flow of the programs. Both shows include highlights from TIE's 2008 international festivals, held in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Paonia, Colorado.
The TIE festival will feature two programs.
PROGRAM 1 will be shown on Wednesday, January 14 - 7:00pm
PROGRAM 2 will be shown on Thursday, January 15 - 7:00pm
Come join me. I'll be going to both, if I can help it. Oh, and since you're going to be stopping by the Ross, you should also probably find time to see Slumdog Millionaire, darling of the Golden Globes, and Synecdoche, NY, the latest adventure into Charlie Kaufman's brain.
I'm in McCook for work, teaching video editing to a group of 20-some 4th graders through high school seniors. Should be an adventure.
