Reminiscences Of A Journey To Lithuania6
This Is Not A Film1


Sept 13 – Sept 27, 2022

How do filmmakers reveal a picture of themselves — in the reframing of films already completed, in the face of a ban from filmmaking, or within the tangles of memory and happenstance? The three films in the Autoportrait series — This Is Not a Film, Cameraperson, and Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania — present filmmakers who reflect on themselves and their craft, finding that their telling of others' stories is also a telling of their own. As each relate to the potentiality of film as a form of memoir, there emerges, somewhere between intention and chance, the self-drawn image of the artist.
