Guy Sherwin - Live Cinema
Sunday, June 4 at 7 PM (Special Screening)
Since the early 70s, UK artist Guy Sherwin has been using film and
projection to explore and experiment with light and time. He will present an
evening of expanded cinema works, from simple performances such as Man with
Mirror in which the filmmaker interacts with his former self; to live
multi-layered projections such as Vowels and Consonants, made and performed
with Lynn Loo.

Ocularis is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for
the exhibition of independent, experimental and documentary film/video and
new media, as well as international and repertory cinema. Established in
1996 as a rooftop film series catering to local audiences in North Brooklyn,
it has since evolved into a weekly cinema, a producer of collaborative
film/video work and a summer open-air screening series.
