Taking its name from the late Agnès Varda film and inspired by that film’s vitality and diversity, “Mur Murs” is a new one-day film series presenting contemporary artists’ cinema in Los Angeles. This inaugural edition presents three programs of new moving-image works in dialogue with the rich histories of avant-garde, experimental, documentary and creative non-fiction cinema. An off-the-beaten-track selection of groundbreaking films/videos (mostly shorts and medium-length pieces), the series brings into sharp focus cinema from international artists screened in conversation with works originating from Los Angeles. Agnostic in genre and format, it also includes recent archival restorations and (re)discoveries. Programs include recent works by Victoria Fu, Mike Gibisser, Jorge Jácome, David de Rozas, Deborah Stratman and others.
In person: curators Rebecca Baron and David Dinnell; filmmaker David de Rozas, among others
