Persistent Visions


Persistent Visions is an ongoing series dedicated to creatively pairing historical and contemporary experimental works and inspiring a dialogue across generations of filmmakers, films, and techniques. Each program highlights recurring topics and themes among disparate films and filmmakers, and aims to explore a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to adventurous works of cinema. While effectively drawing connections among decades of independent films and discourse, the series also strives to make these films newly inviting, accessible, and relevant to audiences discovering the work for the first time.
