Xcèntric 2017

Afterimages. Films & Performances by Kerry Laitala

The CCCB's cinema


Kerry Laitala is closely involved in direct work in the cinematographic medium—filming, editing and sound design—and the optical printing of much of the material, creating celluloid gems of a strange resonance.

Xcèntric, in collaboration with CRATER-Lab, presents a double bill of films and performances, where San Francisco filmmaker Kerry Laitala proposes her particular exploration of pre- and post-cinematographic creations, phantasmagorias, luminescences, 3D stereoscopy, optical effects and scientific-magical research, which she recombines in pieces using different mediums and formats, offering the spectators not films, but filmic experiences.

With the presence of the artist.
