Also check out this remake related programming, etc. instigated by Ben Russell:

An all inclusive production course with LIFT's April artist in residenceA four-session workshop:
Monday April 6, 6pm - 10pm
Monday April 13, 6pm - 10pm
Saturday April 18, 10am - 6pm
Monday April 27, 6pm - 10pmIn as much as everything in art has already been done, this workshop offers you this once-in-a lifetime chance to do it all over again (with the rigorous conceptual and technical guidance of LIFT April artist-in-residence Ben Russell). If context is everything and the authorial voice lies somewhere between idea and gesture, then what happens when you remake a piece of avant-garde cinema history ‘shot-for-shot' and claim it as your own? Over four class sessions, you'll search out the answer to this query by doing exactly that-using the selected short films of Bruce Conner, Maya Deren, Luis Buñuel, Rose Lowder, John Smith, Peter Kubelka, and others as the direct foundation for your own cinematic (re)creations. You'll come away from this workshop with at least 2 completed films under your belt, a collaborative film project underway, a wealth of refined technical skills (flatbed editing, Bolex camera tricks, direct animation, handprocessing, and more), and a firmer grasp on such malleable topics as originality, authorship, translation, and the contemporary moment. The magic of cinema, remade.For complete details on workshop visit
Good luck!
