Sunday November 14 at 4:00 p.m. Filming the city: Vivian Maier and the cinematographic gestures of photographers.
A selection of films by Vivian Maier and avant-garde films from the 1920s to the 1960s, proposed and presented by Christa Blümlinger, critic and teacher-researcher.
These documentaries put Vivian Maier’s discovery as a filmmaker into perspective: they present the gaze of photographers who have explored the movement of large cities through the medium of film. These gestures are now part of the history of avant-garde cinema.
