Vivian Ostrovsky: Plunge
EAI is pleased to present a special evening with filmmaker Vivian Ostrovsky, to mark the New York launch of a compendium of her newly-remastered works by Paris-based experimental film hub Re: Voir. Ostrovsky, whose work ranges from montage shorts to experimental artists’ bios, diary features and immersive installations, will introduce selections within and beyond the Re:Voir collection. A sneak peek of footage from her upcoming short, UNSOUND, which will be included in Film Forum’s artists’ commissions series, as well as short meditations on Chantal Akerman and Clarice Lispector, will be followed by a Q&A and reception.
Re: Voir publishes and distributes DVDs of classic and contemporary experimental cinema. Vivian Ostrovsky: Plunge is the label’s most recent compendium, a two-disc retrospective of Ostrovsky’s work featuring sixteen films between 1982 and 2014, and a sixty-page monograph with contributions by Amy Taubin, Federico Rossin, and Vivian Ostrovsky.
