Microlights Cinema serves as a venue for screening experimental, underground, avant-garde, aprés-garde, and otherwise strange, beautiful, and unusual film//video works.

 

Included in this program are films by Ana Vaz and her colleagues, comrades, and conspirators whose work swirls with her own in a web of shared aesthetic & political trajectories. 

 

"instead of an 
I eye
many eyes
crossing at
the symbolic nexus
between the east 
and the south
between the mouth
and the cave
the hole 
and the shadow
these films
bring together
films of an I
and films of other
kin I-eyes
who i have had
the fortune of
crossing
crissing
meeting
seeing
seeding
at some point
of this uneven globe
and in this
gesture and jest
for a multi-perspective
kino-session
i invite you to see
through and with
these many eyes
into and through
the shaded night
micro and macro
light
and shade
like a monumental mistake 
a drift
adrift"

Ana Vaz (b. 1986, Brasília) is an artist and filmmaker whose films and other expanded works speculate upon the relationships between self and other, myth and history through a cosmology of signs, references and perspectives. Assemblages of found and shot materials, her films combine ethnography and speculation in exploring the frictions and fictions imprinted upon both natural and built environments and its multiple inhabitants. A graduate from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains, Ana was also a member of SPEAP (Sciences Po School of Political Arts), a project conceived and directed by Bruno Latour. Recent screenings of her work include the New York Film Festival – Projections, TIFF Wavelengths, CPH:DOX, Videobrasil, Courtisane, Cinéma du Réel and Lux Salon. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Kazuko Trust Award presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in recognition of artistic excellence and innovation in her moving-image work. Ana is currently in residency at Triangle, New York.
