Celluloid-based filmmaking is alive and well in Europe, thanks to a network of film labs dedicated to both the preservation of technology and cinematic experimentation. Piecing together equipment discarded by industry labs moving to digital, these artist-run spaces have become a haven for moving-image artists wanting to experiment with or continue to use celluloid as part of their practice. This two-night program features work from three of these cooperatives: L'Abominable in La Courneuve, France; Labor Berlin in Berlin, Germany; and Labo Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. While the artists associated with these labs produce work in a variety of styles, the films selected for these two evenings are similar in that they demonstrate extremes of the photographic process.
