On Saturday, August 9th, Rooftop Films and Storm King Art Center will co-present a special night of short films sited among the sculptures and meadows of the Art Center. This first-ever film ramble features films screened on five separate screens. Walking from one screen to the next under an August super moon, audience members are invited to discover beautifully curated collections of new short films.
In 2013, Rooftop Films worked with Storm King to present a screening of Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time (2001) outdoors at the Art Center. Expanding on the concept of site-specific film screenings amidst the sculptures, Rooftop this year will present some of the most visually exciting short films of 2014 in an unforgettable location.
“For 18 years, Rooftop Films has been presenting new, independent films in uniquely scenic locations all across New York City and beyond,” said Dan Nuxoll, program director of Rooftop Films. “Whenever possible we strive to match our films to the venue in some special way, to create a conversation between art and the environment. As one of the most thoughtfully curated sculpture parks in the world, Storm King seemed to us a great location for a program of beautiful, non-narrative short films, and we are excited to have our films curated amongst the hills and grass of the park next to some of the most amazing sculptures on earth.”
Films will include works by internationally acclaimed filmmakers and artists, including Allison Schulnik, Gomez Salamanca, Wendy Morris, Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, Donato Sansone, and Lois Patino. There will also be live musical performances throughout the evening at various locations.
