About Kinetic Cinema:

Kinetic Cinema is a co-presentation of Chez Bushwick and Pentacle-s Movement Media
project, and happens on the second Wednesday of each month as part of a weekly
dance, visual & media arts series at Chez Bushwick. For each screening Anna Brady
Nuse, Pentacle-s director of Movement Media, invites a different guest artist from
the fields of dance and media arts to share a selection of films and videos that
have inspired them. These could be works for screen that feature dance, are
kinetic-based, or have been influential on their work in some way. The guest
curators come from a range of backgrounds as performers, choreographers, critics,
video artists, and film-makers.

working in video and new media; this number exceeded 75 in 2008, and is projected to
increase still further in 2009 through a number of new public programs. Film, Video,
Media, and Interdisciplinary Programs at Chez Bushwick are made possible through a
grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Grants are made to
support efforts to strengthen areas that directly affect the context in which
artists work. More info: ( ... AChgAALrsQ )
