Filmmaker Jeremy Moss, whose work has screened around the globe, brings a 75-minute program of recent moving image work to Albuquerque courtesy of the fine folks at Basement Films. Moss’ “Space Material/Immaterial Place” will screen Sunday, Jan. 18, at the Harwood Art Center (1114 Seventh Street NW) starting at 6pm. In the summer of 2011, Moss began “expanding beyond his narrative training to fully explore expressionistic structural tendencies and its application to place and the moving body.” OK, then. Among the films scheduled for screening are the Super 8 surrealist documentary “Those Inescapable Slivers of Celluloid,” several “dance for camera” collaborations with choreographer Pamela Vail and the essay film he made in collaboration with writer Erik Anderson, “The Blue Record.” The event will take place at the Harwood’s famous “subterranean screening room.” A suggested $5 donation gets you in the door.
