Point of Contact to present filmmaker
The Point of Contact Gallery, in collaboration with the Syracuse International Film Festival, will present an evening with documentary and experimental filmmaker Cecelia Condit Tuesday, Oct. 6. A screening and reception, with the artist in attendance, will take place at 7 p.m. at the gallery, 914 E Genesee St., Syracuse.
The event is free and open to the public.
Condit is a professor of film at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She was the recipient of a 1989 Guggenheim Fellowship. Her films include “Annie Lloyd,” “Little Spirits,” “Why Not a Sparrow” and “All About a Girl.”
“I consider myself a storyteller whose work swings between beauty and the grotesque, humor and the macabre, innocence and cruelty,” Condit says. “My videos explore the dark side of female subjectivity and address the fear, aggression and displacement that exist between ourselves and society, ourselves and the natural world.”
