Lewis Klahr’s Sixty Six (Toronto Premiere!)
Innis Town Hall
2 Sussex Ave, Toronto, ON, CA
In partnership with the Cinema Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, and sponsored by The Beguiling...Cinema Scope magazine is proud to present the Toronto premiere of Lewis Klahr’s Sixty Six (2015)!In the feature-length collage film Sixty Six, Lewis Klahr evokes sixties culture by cutting up printed ephemera from the era, pasting together an oblique and ominous narrative from scraps of comic books, glossy magazines, classical music, and Greek mythology. More than a decade in the making, Klahr’s densely constructed magnum opus is “a valiant attempt to reconcile the existential mysteries of the past with the enduring burdens of the human condition” (Jordan Cronk, Cinema Scope), and “one of the finest cinematic achievements of the year” (Manohla Dargis, New York Times). Sixty Six is cover featured in the latest issue of Cinema Scope.Named one of the top five experimental filmmakers of the 2000s by Film Comment, Lewis Klahr is a Los Angeles-based artist and Guggenheim Fellow who has been hand-making films since 1977. Specializing in collage, he has exhibited internationally, including at the Whitney Biennial, and his work has been purchased by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, where Sixty Six debuted in December.
