Event description

Description

Meshes of the Afternoon
Conceived and directed by Maya Deren, and made in collaboration with cinematographer Alexander Hammid,
Meshes of the Afternoon is an experimental, nonnarrative silent film. For Deren, the film is meant to portray “the inner realities of an individual and the way in which the subconscious will develop, interpret and elaborate an apparently simple and casual incident into a critical emotional experience.”

Dir. Maya Deren, 1943, 16mm film, Black and White, Silent; 14 minutes.


La Jetée
Constructed almost entirely from still photographs, Chris Marker’s award-winning short film
La Jetée tells the story of a haunted survivor of World War III who journeys into the past in search of a fleeting memory, only to discover the terrifying moment of death.

Dir. Chris Marker, 1963, Black and White/Monochrome; Sound; 27 minutes.


Esker Foundation is proud to partner with Sidewalk Citizen on the presentation of these films. The bakery is generously providing complimentary treats created in response to the films.

Registration is recommended, opens 25 February at 11am.
