Dream Weaver 

When: Tue., Aug. 18 2015
Northeast Ohio-based filmmaker, Richard Myers will present and talk through three of his movies that were recently restored by the Archive of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood. His style of filmmaking is rather experimental and he is known for his use of loose narratives or non-narratives, in which his ideas for the films often first come from his dreams. The first film that will be shown is a film called The Path, which follows the outing of a group of people through old buildings, although the main focus of the film is on objects and scenery rather than the characters themselves. The next film, Akbar, follows a student of his from Kent State, an African American filmmaker named Ahmed Akbar. The final film that will be screened is Akran,a non-narrative film with rapidly changing bursts of black and white images that appear in a dream-like flow. The films show tonight at 6:45 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Manno)
