Film Series: Comedy! by Gabriel Abrantes
June 20, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The film series is back for the summer! Join us every other Thursday at the Bridge for six curated screenings of independent and experimental film.
First up: The peculiar, expansive and surprisingly tasteful comedy of Gabriel Abrantes. In just the three films being shown in this program, he manages to poke fun at pretentiousness, Herzog, Obama, poets, period pieces, sci-fi, Freud, and himself.
Here is his more formal blurb:

His work has been shown in exhibitions at the MIT List Center for the Visual Arts, the Palais de Tokyo, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva and Museu Serralves.
