EVENT, SCREENING

The False Aging Trilogy and Prolix Satori series with Lewis Klahr in person

Ongoing

The False Aging Trilogy. Digital projection. World premiere of complete series: April Snow (2010, 10 mins.), Album (2013, 33 mins.), and False Aging (2008, 15 mins.). April Snow is a couplet juxtaposing two pop songs. In False Aging, Klahr covers decades of longing and regret in a haunting collage, with a Jefferson Airplane song asking “Is it true I’m no longer young?” Of his brand new work, Album, Klahr writes: “Bar mitzvahs. Military training. Rock n’ roll. First person, third person. Family photos kept, family photos discarded. A collage of male coming of age stories that sketches ways America changed from the early 60s to the 1990s.”
