    MUNCIE, INDIANA— That One Film Festival Celebrates Experimental Filmmakers During Two-Day Event

The two-day event will be a free live streaming event available online with an in-person, socially-distanced, outdoor opening night screening at Canan Commons on Friday, September 11th (600 S Walnut St, Muncie, Indiana) where visitors can watch the first two programs on a large movie screen, and participate in the live stream content.

    That One Film Festival celebrates the work of moving image artists from around the globe. The festival specializes in experimental, no/low budget, and avant-garde film and video art. This year, more than 275 films were submitted to That One for consideration. Of those submissions, 36 individual films have been selected for this year’s program, in addition to screenings of work by the festival’s two jurors, Karissa Hahn and Laura Parnes, and a performance by filmmaker Michael Morris.

    Part 1: Public Art Film Screening
    Saturday, August 10, from 6-9 PM
    Curated by PlySpace Resident Masha Vlasova
    This screening focuses on 4 video and film works about sculptural markings in urban spaces, memory, and place. Screening time: 50min, followed by group discussion and dialogue. This event is free and open to the public, and no expertise or previous experience with public art is necessary! The screening will be an informal and fun event with light refreshments, though may not be engageing for children under 14.

    Films:
    Running Fence
    Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin, 1978, 57 min
    We will show a 10 min excerpt of this film, with the opportunity to watch entire documentary after the main program is over.
    The film follows the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude as they work with the community to build a 24 mile fence of white fabric over the hills of California disappearing into the Pacific. The excerpt depicts the struggle between the artists and the state bureaucracy in the process of approving and erecting the fence, giving a glimpse into the multi-layered and complicated process of approving and installing a large-scale public art work.

    Turbo Sculpture
    Aleksandra Domanovic, 2010-2013, 19:44 min.
    Turbo Sculpture is a video essay which examines the emergence of a new kind of public art in the former-Yougoslav republics as a response to post-war search for a new national identity. Domanovic’s work offers an international perspective on monumentality and public art.

    Buried and Breaking Away
    Bill Morrison, 2018, 10 min
    Breaking Away was a 1979 film by Peter Yates, filmed in Bloomington, Indiana. In 2014, Bill Morrison buried the reel of the damaged 35mm film print in Bloomington for two months, allowing the physical and chemical elements to distort and alter the emulsion. Upon unearthing, cleaning and screening the print, an abstracted moving image revealed itself. Bill Morrison’s Buried and Breaking Away is a meditation on the physical effects of Indiana’s geology and place on one of its most beloved visual and cultural representation.

    Graven Image
    Sierra Pettengill, 2018, 10 min
    Graven Image tracks the history of the largest Confederate monument, Georgia’s Stone Mountain, exclusively through archival footage.
