NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!
*** Joe Swanberg in person on Friday, 9/23 ***
(7pm screening Q&A hosted by THE NEW YORKER's Richard Brody)
"Many of the images, particularly its glaucous, ruefully contemplative sequences in which crucial moments of relationships play out, are of a kind with the sort that Bergman made in the nineteen-fifties and sixties."
- Richard Brody, THE NEW YORKER
"What makes ART HISTORY most exciting is Swanberg's increasingly developed visual sense. Swanberg is in control of a seductive new color palette, working with some heretofore untapped potentials of his HD tools."
- Michael Sicinski, THE ACADEMIC HACK
"Jealousies and contempt begin swirling like the shadows in numerous night-swimming sequences. The contrast between the clinically bright sex scenes—every freckle and tuft of peach fuzz are clarified in high definition—and the dark lyricism of the house where they are shooting is stark but inscrutable. Swanberg has discovered lighting and mood—to occasionally stunning effect."
- Michelle Orange, THE VILLAGE VOICE (Sep. 21, 2011)
WATCH A CLIP:
Factory 25 presents ART HISTORY, the first of three features premiering at reRun this fall from acclaimed DIY auteur Joe Swanberg (HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS, ALEXANDER THE LAST, AUTOEROTIC). Delving into the emotional minefield of intimate low-budget filmmaking, the provocative 2011 Berlinale premiere makes its New York theatrical run for one week, September 23 - 29.
Sam (Joe Swanberg) has feelings for Juliette (Josephine Decker), the lead actress on his current film shoot. He must maintain a professional relationship while directing her in a sexually explicit drama centered on a couple's one night stand. All is going well until Juliette and her co-star Eric (Kent Osborne) develop feelings for each other that they explore off-camera. Sam is happy that his actors have such great chemistry, but simultaneously feels jealous. Juliette senses Sam's shifting moods and does her best to show him affection, but his own inner struggles threaten to derail the production.
Set entirely in one location over the course of a few days, ART HISTORY uses long static takes and minimal lighting to create a mood of claustrophobia and mystery. Despite the small space they're living and working in, the characters often seem unaware of one another through their individual experiences.
74 minutes. In English. Presented in HD. Unrated.
