Filmmaker Amie Siegel in person for Q&A!
Moving between the gallery space and the cinema, Amie Siegel’s work often places genre fiction within documentary methods. Two films will be screened in full: Black Moon (2010), a partial remake of Louis Malle’s film of the same title, shot in empty, foreclosed housing developments in the U.S., and featuring a troop of female soldiers, pushing through an eerie post-everything wasteland; Winter (2013), an interior/exterior landscape film, juxtaposing the hyper-controlled environment of a New Zealand architect’s home with the surrounding endangered ecology. Clip selections from other new works and a discussion will follow.
