“Audio Visuals” – A Music Video Screening, Q&A, and Concert
Jan 31, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
“Audio Visuals” — a one-time-only event celebrating the art of the music video.
Join us this Sunday in Brooklyn as we honor the locally-based filmmakers who push the medium in new directions, as well as the musicians of the city who inspire them and their art.
Featuring 22 music videos as varied as the backgrounds of their makers — including Emmy® Award winner Robert Kolodny, Finnish director Anton Tammi, the mind-bending local favorite Dylan Greenberg, and Brooklyn-based cinematographer Fletcher Wolfe fresh out of Sundance — the screening will play like a carefully curated mixtape, spanning the genres and emotions of audio and video.
Introducing the screening will be a live performance by the Brooklyn rock band Kung Fu Crimewave in honor of the release of their new music video “Winter Squall”. Shot one stormy winter day on the Jersey Shore, and directed by Brooklyn-based filmmaker and “Audio Visuals” organizer Claire Ensslin, the video evokes how a 12-year-old might imagine a post-apocalyptic wasteland. In addition to opening for Kung Fu Crimewave, locally based hip hop artist Kassa will be premiering a video for his song “Naked Light”, directed by the incredibly prolific Ian Perlman.
Following the screening, over a dozen of our filmmakers in attendance will take part in a panel segment to answer questions about their works and influences — feel free to mingle, make connections, and discuss the art of the music video.
“Audio Visuals” will take place at 3pm on Sunday, January 31st, at Palisades in Brooklyn. This one-time-only event is FREE ($5 suggested donation) and open to all ages.
