Skoller in attendance, in conversation with Daniel Eisenberg.

Tuesday, September 26, 6:00 p.m. | With the first two films of his POSTWAR trilogy—DISPLACED PERSON (pictured, 10 min.) and COOPERATION OF PARTS (40 min.)—Eisenberg explores two different traumatic histories, using film form to express what could not be expressed through language alone. As David Schwartz of Museum of the Moving Image noted, both films “deal with European uprooting, and through a distilled reshaping of images and narrated texts, raise questions about how knowledge and consciousness are transmitted.” Skoller in attendance, in conversation with Daniel Eisenberg.

Lecture SeriesOur fall Lecture Series celebrates 30 years of essential contributions to moving-image culture that alums from the Department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) have produced. The series traces a through-line from late 20th century media practices to current modes of production, giving particular emphasis to the ways independent moving image makers have both changed the conventions of filmmaking and adapted to the digital turn of the 21st century. Lecturer: Daniel EisenbergView full series.
