Charming Augustine (Beloff, 2008)

An Evening with Zoe Beloff

Thursday, February 26, 2009 - 7:00pm

Introduction by Tom Gunning.

Zoe Beloff works with a variety of cinematic imagery that includes stereoscopic film, projection performance and video installation. Each project aims to connect the present with the past, to create new visual languages where modern media will once again be invested with the uncanny. Her recently completed Charming Augustine investigates the history of hysteria in relation to performance, cinema and art.

Includes:
Charming Augustine (2008, Stereoscopic 16mm, b&w, 40 minutes)
The Painted Lady (D.W. Griffith, 1912, 12 minutes)
A Case History of Multiple Personality (Dr. Cornelius C. Wholey, 1930, 15 minutes)

Co-sponsored by The Committee on Cinema and Media Studies, the New Media Workshop, The Experimental Film Club, University of Chicago Student Government and The Mass Cultures Workshop.
