An Evening with Eve Heller

Eve Heller’s films serve as deeply evocative tone poems that foreground formal experimentation with analogue film. As a student of both the first and second generation of American experimental filmmakers, her oeuvre is distinguished by its mysterious lyricism and probing curiosity into the medium of cinema and its relationship to dreams, memories, and time.

Predominantly concerned with found footage and documentary modes of avant garde cinema, Heller constructs her films from educational movies, newsreels, and her own cinematography. These often disparate source materials are refracted and fragmented through an array of analogue treatments that conjure new narratives and associations between them.

Presented on 16mm, 35mm and digital, this programme brings together eight films that span four decades of Heller’s practice.

Followed by an in-person Q&A with Eve Heller.
