RUN OF LIFE: Experimental Documentary Series
RUN OF LIFE: Experimental Documentary Series
RUN OF LIFE is a co-curated experimental documentary and expanded media series to be held at Constellation beginning September 22nd, 2014, and running every third Monday for nine months through May 2015. This new series pairs a recent feature experimental documentarywith a short nonfiction work in any number of mediums – performance, video short, interactive presentation, audio doc, etc. At each event, a post screening Q&A will be moderated by either a local expert engaged in the movie’s subject matter or an artist involved in the making of the work. RUN OF LIFE seeks to create a space for audiences in Chicago to explore and converse about this important and often under-recognized form of media making. We aim to investigate experimental tactics within representations of reality; the empathetic connection that is built through sensory experience rather than factual arguments; and aesthetic shifts in documentary that come with the breakdown of the fourth wall.

Co-curated by Beckie Stocchetti & Christy LeMaster

ALPI by Armin Linke
(2011, 16mm, transferred on Blu-ray, 60min)

ALPI is the result of seven years of research on contemporary perceptions of the landscape of the Alps, juxtaposing places and situations across all eight bordering nations and spanning the territories of four languages. In the film, the Alps are encountered like an island that is connected to various global transformations. We undertook many journeys in the alpine region, which, ironically, led us as far as Dubai. The film shows the Alps as a key location, owing to its delicacy and environmental importance, where one can observe and study the complexity of social, economic, and political relationships. In the Europe of today, the Alps are a hotbed for modernity and its illusions. - AL
