Film Screening: The Illusionist’s Reality at Transmitter Gallery

  • Transmitter Gallery 1329 Willoughby Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11237 United States (map)

With Short Films by Mavi Phillips, Basma Alsharif, and Jennifer May Reliand

In this selection of films, three female filmmakers explore documentary filmmaking by pushing the boundaries of their medium and the act of storytelling. From the Hungarian countryside to the Gaza Strip to animated illustrations of 17th century France, we’re taken through on an often transcendental journey of dreamlike representations of reality that take into question the subjectivity of the world around us and bring to our attention through the female gaze important questions about the nature of humanity.
