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.
“With more than 20 films since 1979, Peter Tscherkassky is one of Austria’s most productive filmmakers. What is remarkable, however, is not so much the quantity as the consistent quality of his work. 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.”
