ROOM H.264: Astoria, NY, January 2018
Location: Redstone Theater
With Jeff Reichert and Damon Smith in person
Dirs. Jeff Reichert, Damon Smith, Eric Hynes. U.S.A. 2018, approximately 45 mins. Digital projection. This film, to be shot, edited, finished, and screened all within the dates of the First Look festival, is an open-ended homage to Wim Wenders’s documentary Room 666. As in Wenders’s original, visiting filmmakers, alone with a camera in a hotel room, will answer the question “Is cinema a dead language, an art which is already in the process of decline?” Participants will include an international selection of filmmakers visiting for First Look 2018. World premiere.
