This year's program features four nationally-known artists improvising to a century's worth of classic experimental cinema. Projected from 16mm prints, this year's films range from the classic works of Brakhage and Méliès to a modern piece created by local musician Tatsu Aoki.
Besides Aoki, who will be providing his own musical accompaniment, the event will also feature local musicians Azita and Plastic Crimewave. Rounding out the bill is Philadelphia's Fursaxa. For the complete who/what/where and when, visit: http://whpk.uchicago.edu/events/
