> DESCRIPTION

The State of the World includes short films and videos by David Baeumler (Cambridge, MA), Lisa Vinebaum (London), Natalie Frigo (Brooklyn), Jessica Lawless and Wil Nicholson (Los Angeles), Pattrick Mills. R (Cincinnati), Sietske Tjallingii (Amsterdam), and Geoffrey Thomas (Ft. Lauderdale). Through 16 mm film, digital video, animation, and appropriated footage these works reflect, from current perspectives, on timeless issues: war, politics, society, race and gender. The approaches vary from interview style story telling to performance to voice over narrations, however the content can all be distilled to a few basic questions: Who are we? Why are we here? And how do we engage with each other and our surroundings?

Film & Video 825 is a bi-monthly event or screening of local, national and internationally recognized video artists’ work, curated by LAAA/Gallery 825 and members of the arts community. It is the ongoing mission of Film & Video 825 to support and provide a forum for presenting in Los Angeles, bold, contemporary works that are outside the mainstream of narrative cinema. Our curatorial vision is open to both shorts and features in experimental, performance, animation, and documentary forms.
