Filmmaker Simon Tarr in person! Los Angeles premieres!
Simon Tarr comes from South Carolina with films and live cinema performance! Many Los Angeles premieres!
Not well known yet on the West Coast, Simon Tarr utilizes a full array of methods to create his expressive media work. Sometimes he grabs video glitches and renders them in one luxurious colorful whole; other times he films fleeting moments in centers of world finance. He manipulates found footage in completed works and live “remixes” that change the meaning of the original work. It’s a shame that we haven’t hosted his work in Los Angeles previously, and we’re delighted to rectify the situation. Be sure to come out and see the possibilities!
