Shockwaves

Special Sneak Preview! Filmmaker in Person!
France, United States | 2013 | Kasumi

Shockwaves

The first feature by pioneering experimental filmmaker, multimedia artist, and CIA faculty member Kasumi (2011 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship) is a darkly comic psychological tale in which reality is revealed as a constantly shifting paradox. The film focuses on a man whose traumatic childhood memories of abuse suffered at the hand of his father send him on a maddening spiral of self-destruction. Through a surrealistic Möbius strip of alternate realities, shifting times, and multiple dimensions, Shockwaves weaves 25,000-plus individual shots (both original and archival) into a kaleidoscopic tapestry of cinematic imagery, original dance choreography, innovative animation, and evocative sound design. It’s a heady recipe that encompasses the biting social satire of Natural Born Killers, the hallucinogenic state of Enter the Void, and a dash of Wile E. Coyote versus the Road Runner. Shockwaves explores the lasting nature of abusive power and the emotional imprints it leaves behind.

Q & A will follow the screening. 82 min.
