Occultism in Experimental Film Night

Experimental cinema and esotericism intersect in their shared pursuit of transcending conventional norms. Both embrace visual abstraction, symbolically rich storytelling, and a departure from traditional structures. Experimental filmmakers employ unconventional techniques, challenging audience expectations, while esoteric themes add an air of mystery and metaphysical exploration. This convergence results in cinematic works that invite contemplation, bridging the tangible and mystical realms.

This evening features three remarkable works that transcend traditional boundaries, inviting you to delve into the surreal, the imaginative, and the visually compelling.

Maya Deren, a trailblazer in avant-garde cinema, presents “Witch’s Cradle,” an exploration of surreal and hypnotic realms that showcases her innovative storytelling and cinematographic techniques. (1944 12:00 Min)

Eric Duvivier’s “La Femme 100 Tetes” takes you on a journey into visual poetry, challenging cinematic norms with imaginative storytelling inspired by Max Ernst’s collage novel. (1967 21:00 min)

Harry Smith’s visionary work, “Heaven and Earth Magic,” (Extract) offers a unique blend of animation and folklore, providing a glimpse into his esoteric symbolism and intricate hand-drawn and collage animation. (1957, 10:00 Min)

Join us on this journey through experimental landscapes crafted by visionary filmmakers, each introduced and contextualized by Juan Pablo Arce Cardozo @laterceramano , Artist , collector, curator.
