First Person Cinema is excited to host Gregg Biermann, a widely screened film and video artist who has been working since the late '80s. He will be in Boulder to present a survey of work he completed over the last decade. Often working with footage from Hollywood classics like THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939), REAR WINDOW(1954), NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959), and others, Biermann’s work takes advantage of the possibilities of digital cinema to advance rigorous compositional strategies. Also in this program is The Age of Animals -- an unsettling, and dizzying lament on the end of animal life of planet Earth. “As a whole, Gregg Biermann’s recent work suggests a sense of the overwhelming in a historical moment in which we are disoriented visually, sonically, socially, politically, and even biologically. It reflects and refracts the sense that, even as we attempt to make sense of the contemporary world, it continues to shift, becoming a foreign and unfamiliar territory. In Biermann’s work, as in contemporary life, our landmarks are constantly shifting, forcing us to find new ways of locating ourselves in a spatial and temporal situation that is ever slipping beyond our mind’s grasp.”-- Jaimie Baron. Gregg Biermann is Co-President of the New American Cinema Group/Filmmakers Cooperative in New York and is Professor of Cinema Studies at Bergen Community College in New Jersey and also teaches at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
