retrospective and conversation, 7pm
jul 24 2014
Internationally acclaimed independent filmmaker Vincent Moon is coming to Miami for an exclusive Florida visit. An intimate talk with the artist preceded by a retrospective of his work at the Screening Room in Wynwood.
The New York Times stated in 2011 that French indie filmmaker Vincent Moon reinvented the music video. Filming in odd locations, with lo-fi gear, using a cinéma vérité one take style, Vincent stripped the performance to its raw, enigmatic core - just the performer, their music and the environment. He has worked with bands like Arcade Fire, the National, R.E.M., Beirut, Mogwai among others. Vincent has made several tour documentaries and designed an online video companion to the R.E.M.'s 2008 album "Accelerate." Just when he became well known, he also became restless. He abandoned his life in Paris and has been on the road ever since. The music of South America and Haiti are among his latest fascinations. Vincent is an independent artist, creating in the age of new technology, making all of his work free and open to the public under the creative commons license.
Event was presented by Indie Film Club Miami's Filmgate Interactive Program and The Screening Room.
