Homo Sapiens Project By Rouzbeh Rashidi at the Chester Beatty Library

Experimental Film Society in association with the Chester Beatty Library presents a programme of Homo Sapiens Project by Rouzbeh Rashidi on Saturday 27 October 2012 1-3pm.

Address: Chester Beatty Library, Dublin Castle, Dublin 2.


Homo Sapines Project are highly experimental, part cryptic film diaries and part impressionistic portraits of places and people, and often suffused with an eerie sense of mystery reminiscent of horror cinema. From highly composed and distantly framed meditations to frenetically flickering plunges into the textural substance of moving images, the restless creativity of this vision of life as a cinematic laboratory is never short of surprising. Encompassing everything from documentary monologues to found footage, Rashidi constantly strives to expand his filmmaking palette while putting his unmistakable stamp on whatever footage passes through his hands.
