Resident Video is a monthly series that provides exclusive access to films from emerging artists. This month, we bring you Kate Raney and Jeremy Bessoff’s Lingua Absentia.
Art is often imitation of life. Art can be many things imaginative, reclusive, interpretive and perhaps even real. Ralph Ellison and Gordon Parks in Harlem, an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago is by far as real as it gets.
Part of our ongoing From the Vidéothèque Vault series, Anna Siemienkiewicz brings us a Czech cinema gem, Karel Steklý’s The Good Soldier Schweik (1957). This brilliant satire on the Austro-Hungarian society of the late 1910s is surprisingly still relevant with its portrayal of authoritarian power and patriotic obedience.
