The Experimental Film Club proudly presents an assortment of fantastical films in which cinema is envisioned as a magical form and magic is visualized through the space of the theater. Make sure to bring your amulet pouch, because the occult, black magic, and alchemical practice will be brought to light, and invisible realities are set to emerge through a magical explosion of sensations! Filmmaker Alexander Stewart will attend the screening.
