Drawing inspiration from the silver paintings that will be featured in CMOA’s upcoming exhibition Jacqueline Humphries, the theme for this year’s 2-Minute Film Festival is "The Silver Screen." Humphries uses metallic pigments in many of her works, layering it with a chalky black to create complex surfaces she has compared to the aesthetics of film noir: “Unlike in Western or gangster films, where you have a vertical figure against a horizontal background that he stands out from, in film noir, the figure is completely collapsed into the picture. His face is often in shadow and he is completely embedded in the atmosphere and light of the frame. I feel this captures something I am after in the paintings, of complete embeddedness."
See how filmmakers from around the globe have interpreted this unique relationship between two very different artforms. CMOA’s 2MFF reveals exactly how much can be accomplished in a mere 120 seconds and reminds us that, even under strict limitations, creativity is limitless!
