REDCAT: “Geiser is a guide to the other side, wherever that “other” might be.” —KCET Artbound
In person: Janie Geiser
Janie Geiser’s celebrated short films and puppet-theater performances delve deeply into the realm of waking dreams, weaving fragments of sounds and moving images into mysterious tales at the edge of logic and memory. Geiser is a master of minimal means, and she blends archaic images, antique objects, forgotten popular culture, old charts and maps, and an undercurrent of sensual textures into magical experiences. Geiser will present her first local film program in several years, including six Los Angeles premieres: Arbor (2012), The Hummingbird Wars (2013), Kriminalistik (2014), Silent Sister (2015), Cathode Garden (2015), Flowers of the Sky (2016) and Look and Learn (2017).
