A selection of some of New York City’s most recent and interesting work in super-8, chosen as a representation of current imagery, aesthetics, and styles particularly prominent in Manhattan’s East Side. While the filmmakers’ nationalities include many parts of the world (Thailand, Europe, etc.), all have been living in New York for several years, and all work primarily in super-8. The films included range from diary footage to genre satire, from spiritual and political commentaries to playful explorations of the Super-8 format. Guest-curated by Robin Dickie, Program Director for the Collective for Living Cinema in N.Y.C.
