See It Big! Documentary
Friday, Jan 29 - Sunday, Feb 21, 2016
Ever since the Lumière brothers brought their Cinematograph around the globe, documentary filmmakers have sought ways to immerse viewers in the spectacle of reality. The recent interest in virtual reality reveals a desire to reduce this impulse to the size of a smartphone screen. But in the films featured in this all-documentary edition of شاهدها كبيرة!, the size of the screen and the nature of the collective theatrical experience are vital.
شاهدها كبيرة! هي سلسلة مستمرة من تنظيم تسديدة عكسية editors Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert, Chief Curator David Schwartz, and Associate Curator of Film Eric Hynes.
