The Art of Cinema, Locally
Join us on Slow Art Friday, October 15th, 5 to 9pm, for the opening of “The Art of Cinema Locally”. This film exhibition will feature interactive work from several award-winning filmmakers and producers. Show runs October 15th thru Novemeber 13.
The targeted goal of this venture is to deliver an direct and responsive experience for film enthusiasts and casual filmgoers. The exposition will showcase the diversified elements of production involved in creating cinema. Through breaking down various scenes and director’s visions from various genres of film, the demonstration will offer a more visual and personal experience into the fibers of the moving image. Along with the gallery showcase, Peggy Chun Gallery will be screening the featured films for public audiences at the Venue during their annual Monday Movie Night Showcase. The Venue is located in the Chinatown Arts district of Honolulu.
Film genres will be diversified between documentary and short-film live action pieces. Each film’s story discusses an aspect of culture and history from within Hawaii. The featured films and filmmakers are the following:
State of Aloha- Anne Misawa
CHIEF- Brett Wagner
Lychee Thieves- Kathleen Kwai Ching Man
