RUBICON CINEMA 2015-2016 SEASON FINALE: 35 mm Experimental Cinema Night

RUBICON CINEMA 2015-2016 SEASON FINALE: 35 mm Experimental Cinema Night

The 9th and final event of Rubicon’s 2015-16 season features renowned Austrian filmmaker PETER TSCHERKASSKY, Cleveland filmmaker ROBERT BANKS, and Kent-based artist JENNIFFER OMAITZ.

Tscherkassky never allows himself to fall back on certainties, rather, with each film, he is sizing up new territory. Tscherkassky’s films are exceptional because he knows how to pair his strict concepts and his consistent exploration of a subject with a visual richness, revealing new, surprising facets of sensuality with every film he makes.”
