In person: Daïchi Saïto
Over the past fifteen years, Montreal-based film artist Daïchi Saïto has created a singular body of analog film work in which the rigor of his conceptualization and execution is matched only by the intense beauty and power of his images. Manipulating his film material by hand via chemistry and optics, Saïto’s work gives material dimension to otherwise elusive notions of ephemerality, confusion, subjectivity, and memory. REDCAT is honored to partner with Los Angeles Filmforum, through support of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, to bring Daïchi Saïto to Los Angeles for his first retrospective program. The evening will feature films in Super 8, 35mm, and 16mm double-projection, encapsulating a body of work and an evening of filmmaking that promises to astonish.
