Michelle Fleming and Zack Stiglicz in person!

An evening of work committed to the exploration of the filmic image. In the long tradition of the American experimental and avant-garde cinema, both Fleming and Stiglicz plumb the photographic image for expression, for meaning and for its photographic beauty. This evening’s program includes Michelle Fleming’s Life/Expectancy (1999), a meditative search for meaning at mid-life. With images of smoke billowing from chimneys, thorny stems twisting, and records spinning, as well as clips from numerous Hollywood films, Life/Expectancy plays out like a psychoanalytic case study.
