TIP OF MY TONGUE with filmmaker Lynne Sachs

To mark her 50th birthday, experimental documentary filmmaker Lynne Sachs gathers a group of her contemporaries-- all New Yorkers but originally hailing from all corners of the globe-- for a weekend of recollection and reflection on the most life-altering personal, local, and international events of the past half-century, creating a collective distillation of their times.

Interspersed with poetry and flashes of archival footage, this poignant reverie reveals how far beyond our control life is, and how far we can go despite this.

On Tuesday, October 3, join the CAMS Department for a screening of this film with filmmaker Lynne Sachs in attendance! The screening is free and open to the public, and seating is first come, first served.

Called "the reigning proponent of cut and paste" by J. Hoberman of the Village Voice, master collagist Lewis Klahr has been making films since 1977. He is known for his uniquely idiosyncratic collage films which have screened extensively in the United States, Europe and Asia—in venues such as New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the Hong Kong International Film Festival, the London Film Festival, the LA County Museum of Art, the Tate Modern and REDCAT. His work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Coleccion Inelcom.  (source)
