Experimenta India: Films from the Indian Avant-Garde Program 1

Los Angeles Filmforum is thrilled to present two distinct programs of historical and contemporary experimental Indian films curated by filmmakers Shai Heredia and Shumona Goel who will be in person from India for these two unique and rarescreenings, coming on Monday June 26 and Wednesday June 28. Despite a long and internationally celebrated cinematic tradition, the Indian avant-garde is much lesser known to American audiences than the many canonical works of Indian feature filmmaking.  With generous support from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, Filmforum has invited Shai Heredia and Shumona Goel to present their own acclaimed works along with a specially curated selection of short films that will attempt an abbreviated  survey of India’s experimental cinematic landscape.  Their joint visit to Los Angeles to share and discuss their and other artists’ work is an incredibly rare opportunity not to be missed!  Artists/curators Shai Heredia & Shumona Goel in person!  Ticketing through Los Angeles Filmforum, $10 general, $6 students, free for Filmforum members.  www.lafilmforum.org
