RPM Fest presents Sabine Gruffat & Bill Brown: Moving or Being Moved

Coming on February 23

Run Time: 90 min.

RPM Festival and The Brattle co-present a program of experimental short films by dynamic artist-filmmaker duo Sabine Gruffat and Bill Brown. Gruffat and Brown have been making experimental films, documentaries and essay films, and performing live electronic improvisation, for over two decades.

Sabine Gruffat explores different methods to generate content and images, from laser cutting/etching on 35mm film strips to 3D animation. Bill Brown is known for his nomadic filmmaking and for transporting us to various destinations. The seven shorts in this program highlight their praxis over the past 10 years.
