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


"I want to make cinema that is both trance-like and transparent: that operates on dream logic until disrupted by a moment of self-reflexivity, like tripping on an extension cord."

- Mary Helena Clark

 

The films of Mary Helena Clark explore narrative tropes, the materiality of film, and the pleasure of tromp l'oeil.

 

 

Mary Helena Clark lives and works in central New York. Her work has been exhibited and screened nationally and internationally, including presentations at the Swedish Film Institute (Stockholm), The Gene Siskel Film Center, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Document Space (Chicago), the Wexner Center for the Arts (Columbus, OH), Anthology Film Archives (New York), the Yerba Buena Center (San Francisco), the National Gallery of Art (Washington) and at the New York, London and Toronto International Film Festivals. She has curated film programs for Altman Siegel Gallery, San Francisco, and The Nightingale, Chicago, among other venues.
