Heart of Darkness in Motion!

“The horror! The horror!” Gaze upon The Heart of Darkness, ye mighty, and despair! All right, we’re mixing up our quotes, but it’s often hard to describe the effect of art upon the spirit—especially images as eerie, vibrant, and vicious as Matt Kish’s illustrated edition of Conrad’s classic Heart of Darkness. Check out this wonderful video (courtesy of the Tin […]

Tin House Reels: Manolo Moreno

This week’s Tin House Reels short is Manolo Moreno’s riff on ukulele cheese, “Silly Little Hate Song.” The inspiration behind the film is almost as charming as the final product. “Around seven years ago,” Manolo recalled, “I wanted a tiny guitar so the portability would counteract my clumsiness and the size would be easy to […]

Tin House Reels: Keren Cytter

Literally “The Whisper of the Devi”, Keren Cytter’s “Les Ruissellements du Diable” is a story of obsessive imaginations and the ways in which we can both obliterate and subscribe to reality. Based on Julio Cortázar’s “Las babes des Diablo” (also the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni’s film Blowup), the narrative involves a man and a woman simultaneously […]

Tin House Reels: Sasha Waters Freyer

This week we’re excited to screen Sasha Waters Freyer’s Our Summer Made Her Light Escape, a wordless, 16mm portrait of interiority, maternal ambivalence and the passage of time. Our Summer explores quotidian allurements and cruelties: a crippled bee, a mole in its death throes, a smashed robin’s egg. Born in Brooklyn in 1968, Sasha Waters Freyer is a moving image artist creating […]

Tin House Reels: Kelly Fry

This week we’re excited to screen Kelly Fry’s The Ballad of Pete Fry. “Everyone had a story about Pete [my father],” Kelly said. “He was a gambler, drinker, trickster, and storyteller—and, after his death, he became a folk hero.”  The film narrates those many viewpoints from family and friends—and leaves us with a sad, still, piercing silhouette of this […]
