How to Watch Experimental Film

When: Wed., Feb. 4, 7-8:30 p.m. 2015

Experimental cinema is often considered too esoteric and difficult for many moviegoers, but these films often provide a range of pleasures that mainstream movies do not. Experimental cinema is actually quite fun, if you know what to look for. This presentation by Daniel Herbert, U-M Associate Professor in Screen Arts & Cultures, provides an opportunity to watch and discuss a few of the “canonical” works of experimental cinema, as well as some newer films, in order to better understand why they look (and sound) the way they do.
