A Film & Performance Workshop by Lior Shamriz
Saturdays 12-4pm, September 30 - October 14
This workshop is a platform for production, experimentation, learning and discussion. For actors it provides an opportunity to work and try out different “acting languages”. For filmmakers, visual artists, cineastes, this workshop is an arena to sketch, develop ongoing projects and begin new ones, within the frame of a critical forum. We will focus this time on annihilation & anxiety, cinema & mummification, fetish & artificial intelligence within visual representation, the apocalypse, civilization decay and related subjects.
Lior Shamriz was born in Ashkelon on the East Mediterranean, lived a decade in Berlin and is now based in L.A. They create essayistic narrations that queerly utilize cinema as performance and the cinematic languages as a process of reflexive documentation. Their films screened at numerous international film festivals, including Berlinale (2010, 2013, 2015), Locarno, Torino, Frameline, Sarajevo, MoMA NYC, KW-Berlin & awarded prizes at the Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage (2013, 2014, 2015) & were nominated to the Max Ophuls Prize and shortlisted for the Prize of the Nationalgalerie Germany for young art cinema. DEATH WISH is their 3rd workshop at PAM.
