Now in its 10th year, Projections is a unique film festival jointly organized by writer/filmmaker/curator Aaron Rose and Roberts Projects. In our fourth installment, Rose once again mines the depths of the cinematic landscape looking for hidden and forgotten gems. For your viewing pleasure we offer an enlightening adventure in 90 minute long increments.
In a landscape where the plastic passions of Hollywood filter out all but the blandest of material, Projections steps in to offer alternative possibilities. Some of these selections were theatrical releases that never got their due, while others have been plucked from the celluloid undergrounds of either the internet or obscure cable TV. They are brilliant, weird, dramatic and self-serving, mundane and interrogating, and absolutely life-affirming. Please note that these films are presented in a nonheirarchical fashion to emphasize the universality of the movie-watching experience. Commentaries by Aaron Rose.
