Special Sneak Preview of Shockwaves at the Capitol Theatre

Add event to my calendar

Please plan to join us for 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.
