miffonedge take 2

MIFFONEDGE Take 2 features a series of audiovisual works that challenge how we look at, listen to, and think about film. You can try your hand at direct animation by participating in the Community Cameraless Film Project at Common Street Arts. Jodie Mack’s animations enliven everyday objects and encourage us to see the world around us in new ways. Two mesmerizing video works by Aaron Valdez reanimate a collection of old educational films and mix a newsreel about Robert Kennedy with the Hollywood classic High Noon. Finally, San Francisco-based film and video artist Kerry Laitala uses a variety of techniques, including hand-processed photographs, optical printing, and animation of pre-existing material like Victorian-era stereoscopic slides. Her films thus simultaneously explore both the past and the future of moving image culture.
