DESCRIPTION

UCLA Film and Television Archive and Center for Visual Music present the first West Coast retrospective of films by celebrated Dutch filmmaker and installation artist Joost Rekveld. Rekveld, who will appear in person, started making abstract films in 1991 after he invited Bill Moritz and Elfriede Fischinger to come to the Netherlands to present a day-long survey of abstract cinema. Almost twenty years later, Rekveld pursues his fascination with human perception and the history of optics and perspective with the aim of creating a "music for the eyes." An important part of his filmmaking is to develop his own tools, often inspired by the less frequented by-ways in the history of science and technology. Films featured: #3 (1994), #23.2 Book of Mirrors (2002), #7 (1996), and #11 Marey <-> Moiré (1999). TRT 69 minutes. In person: Joost Rekveld. 35mm/16mm

Billy Wilder Theatre at The Hammer Museum, Westwood
