Experimenta India: Films from the Indian Avant-Garde Program 1
Monday June 26, 2017 at 8:00pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Experimenta India: Films from the Indian Avant-Garde Program 1
At the Echo Park Film Center, 1200 N. Alvarado St., Los Angeles CA 90026
Artists/curators Shai Heredia & Shumona Goel in person!

Los Angeles Filmforum is thrilled to present two distinct programs of historical and contemporary experimental Indian films curated by filmmakers Shai Heredia and Shumona Goel who will be in person from India for these two unique and rare screenings.

Despite a long and internationally celebrated cinematic tradition, the Indian avant-garde is much lesser known to American audiences than the many canonical works of Indian feature filmmaking.  With generous support from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, Filmforum has invited Shai Heredia and Shumona Goel to present their own acclaimed works along with a specially curated selection of short films that will attempt an abbreviated  survey of India's experimental cinematic landscape.  Their joint visit to Los Angeles to share and discuss their and other artists work is an incredibly rare opportunity not to be missed!

Over two different programs, a necessarily fractional but illuminating view of the extensive and eclectic Indian avant-garde will be traced by our guests, spanning 1960s experimental classics by artists such as Pramod Pati to contemporary artists working today.

More information on the individual film lineups will be announced soon, but we are pleased to already confirm that two multi-award-winning short films by Heredia and Goel - I AM MICRO (2010) and AN OLD DOG'S DIARY (2015) - will be included in the programs.

Filmforum is also extremely pleased to once again collaborate with UCLA Film & Television Archive in presenting program 2 on Wednesday, June 28.

Tickets: $10 general admission; $6 students (with ID)/seniors; free for Filmforum members.
Tickets available in advance or at the door.
