Experimental Film as Psychogeography
Wed, Mar 21 10:00 AM (120 min)
Gerry Fialka’s interactive discussion involves the participants as urban explorers (aka flaneurs) redefining cinema with new metaphors and questions. Guy Debord explained psychogeography in 1955 as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.” As a group, we delve into the work of avant-garde filmmakers Dziga Vertov, Chris Marker, Agnes Varda, Bill Brown, and Theo Anthony, investigating public environments, surfing the internet, and emphasizing playfulness and “drifting.” We probe the hidden psychic effects of film experimentalists via Marshall McLuhan, who observed: “A movie camera carries your eyes out on your feet into the world—it’s mobile.” As detectives and strollers, we can flip the internet’s immersive environment and socially engineer the global theater.
