We are pleased to inform you that MIMSGG has organized another free film screening at the Trylon as a continuation of our collaborative’s work on media and obsolescence. The film we will be watching and discussing on Thursday, November 29th, 7 pm at the Trylon is the visually and aurally stunning Koyaanisqatsi (1982). Free tickets can be reserved on the Trylon website where you will also find an introductory write-up on the film by Matthew Tchepikova-Treon.
UPDATE: all the tickets have been claimed, but we’ll get a wait-list going, so for those who come early there’s still a good chance to get in.
Please note for future reference: Prior to the screening we will be holding a projection booth workshop at the Trylon, where a small number of participants has a chance to get acquainted with the routine of a movie theater projection booth, the analogue and digital screening technology as well as other bits and pieces that are part and parcel of the art of showing film professionally at a time when film (-stock, -reels, etc.) as a material object have more emotional than technological value. At this point all spots are taken for the workshop on Nov. 29th, but we will be holding a number of such events across different theaters around Minneapolis over the course of the remaining academic year. Please be in touch with us if you want to participate in one of the forthcoming workshops, and we will include you in the planning. The workshops are open to all, free and limited to 5 individuals per date.
In the meantime, we are looking forward to seeing you at Koyaanisqatsi!
