Tuesday, November 7, 6:00 p.m. | The city as subject figures strongly in the history of film. From the "city symphony" films of the 1920's to the film noir films of the 1940's and 1950's to BLADE RUNNER, the utopian and dystopian city remains a constant theme. This program, of SOMETHING MORE THAN NIGHT (pictured, 2003, dir. Daniel Eisenberg, 73 min.) and NIGHT PATROL (2020, dir. Kye Stone, 12 min.) reveals Chicago at night from myriad perspectives, seasons, and sites, and draws attention to those workers who make the city run, invisible to the rest of us, while preparing the urban space for the next day...and the day after.

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.
