(Suzanne Simpson, 1973, USA, digital, 14 min.)
& panel discussion with Karl Wirsum, Suzanne Simpson, Alex Inglizian, Marc Riordan (Pentimenti Productions)

Showing in a new digital restoration, Suzanne Simpson’s little-known 1973 film Karl Wirsum peeks into the sun-dappled California studio of a young artist as he embarks on an extraordinary career. Wirsum’s psychedelic marionette sculptures still dazzle today, while his narration and a newly composed mind-bending soundtrack (performed live) draw viewers into his process and personality.
A brief reception will follow the screening/discussion.
