Experimental Films

This vast collection of experimental films proves just how boundless the genre can be. From Chantal Akerman's aesthetically minimalist and humanist reflection on 'the Israel question' in DOWN THERE, to Robert Kramer and John Douglas's free-associative document of American life in MILESTONES, to pranksters of Contemporary Art Peter Fischli & David Weiss in THE WAY THINGS GO, to Tiffany Sia's assemblages of eye-witness resistance in Hong Kong, to Raúl Ruiz and Valeria Sarmiento’s Chilean surrealist film THE WANDERING SOAP OPERA, and John Akomfrah’s hybrid films that deploy science fiction in pan-African culture, each of these films challenge the standards of storytelling, break all the rules, and expand our consciousness.
