Filmmaker Christopher Harris to discuss work March 6

Award-winning experimental filmmaker Christopher Harris will screen and discuss his work on March 6 in Morris Library’s John C. Guyon Auditorium.

The screenings begin at 6:30 p.m., and are free and open to the public. Harris’ films include a look at a post-industrial landscape; an optically printed and hand-processed film about black outlaws; a pinhole film about the cosmic consequences of the sun’s collapse, a macro lens closeup of a child’s nightlight, and a double projection film about a theme park performance of Christ’s Passion.

Harris’ work has screened at festivals, museums and cinematheques throughout North America and Europe. Film Quarterly published “Cosmologies of Black Cultural Production: A Conversation with Afrosurrealist Filmmaker Christopher Harris,” in the summer 2016 issue.
