A film by Lewis Klahr

Tickets $8 in advance, $10 at the door
Presented by Cinema Scope Magazine, the Cinema Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, and The Beguiling Books & Art
In the feature-length collage film Sixty Six, Lewis Klahr pastes together an oblique and ominous narrative from scraps of 1960s printed ephemera (comic books, glossy magazines, advertisements), classical music, and Greek mythology. More than a decade in the making, Klahr’s densely constructed magnum opus is “one of the finest cinematic achievements of the year” (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times),” and is the cover feature of the latest issue of Cinema Scope (the aptly numbered #66).
Named one of the top five experimental filmmakers of the 2000s by Film Comment, Lewis Klahr is a Los Angeles-based artist and Guggenheim Fellow who has been hand-making films since 1977. Specializing in collage, he has exhibited internationally, including at the Whitney Biennial, and his work has been purchased by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, where Sixty Six debuted in December.
