The Films

During this screening, the cult secret TV show will world-premiere a night of new work commissioned as part of their new 13-episode second season. Taken together, these new shorts represent the vanguard of radical independent filmmaking.

The Eyeslicer is a secret TV show blending the boldest new American filmmaking into mind-expanding, mixtape-style episodes. The show has screened in hundreds of venues around the world from MoMA to Rotterdam to Kansas City’s oldest porn theater, and has collaborated with filmmakers like Ari Aster, David Lowery, Jennifer Reeder, Amy Seimetz, Shaka King, and many more in their quest to build a radical film culture on the fringes of America’s late-capitalist hellscape. The Eyeslicer’s thirteen episode second season (which will be for sale for the first time as part of this show) features work from over 70 filmmakers. It is created by Dan Schoenbrun & Vanessa McDonnell, produced by Mila Matveeva, and executive produced by New Mexico-based arts collective MEOW WOLF and animation studio Cartuna.

Performer

Ziemba

Ziemba’s hypnotic songs provide solace during catastrophic weather events, and frequently grace exotic terrain here on planet Earth, from episodes of Comedy Central’s Broad City to the French Institute in Fez, Morocco. Her debut full length Hope is Never provides strong arsenal in the fight against nihilism, with hopeful ballads of decay and the infinite; while her most recent release, LALA, inhabits the psyche of a succubus and smells like juniper berries & dragon’s blood.
