Film Screening: The Grand Bizarre

May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Cost: Free

Come out and celebrate the final day of the spring semester with a film screening of one of the most fun (and acclaimed) experimental films in recent years! Playful, visually inventive, and impossible to describe, Jodie Mack’s The Grand Bizarre explores the global textile industry and embraces the colors and patterns of the world around us. “Using travel as its essential framework, The Grand Bizarre examines the world through textiles—a frequent motif in Mack’s work. We see rugs, fabric swatches, scarves, and tapestries come to life through stop-motion and single-frame movement, often flickering by in mirrors and at certain locations in the image. They are colorful banners representing the patterns and timeless order that underpins the apparent chaos of daily life. But then, Mack is also working with a dual meaning of the word “material.” She shows us the production process, how contemporary weaving takes place and the way goods are shipped all over the global marketplace. What was once a purely artisanal practice is now a network that interconnects all of us, and Mack makes it clear that she too is part of this international system of exchange.” – Michael Sicinski, MUBI
