Albert Allgaier Presents Cinema Shiro
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6 AT 8PM. $5 SUGGESTED DONATION.
Many years ago, Vienna based artist, Albert Allgaier recorded an obscure Japanese experimental film playing on television late in the night. Never officially released and overdubbed in German, the film has become a cult classic among Albert’s circle of peers and so Cinema Shiró was born; an international film festival dedicated to a single movie. An exercise in endurance for the audience and Albert alike, Cinema Shiró has become a monument to a virtually unknown director which enfolds in the ephemeral setting of the screening frame by frame. Previous screenings include Batumi (Georgia), Hokkaido (Japan), the Catholic Workers Union of Porto (Portugal), and a nudist colony in Neringa (Lithuania). CURATOR IN ATTENDANCE!
