Event description

Description

Better Made Progress is a retrospective survey of short films by the American artist and film programmer Amir George made between 2011 and 2016. The films are an exploration of mental health patterns and processes of healing; including spiritual stories that juxtapose sound and image with a non-linear perception, fragmented vignettes that conjure the secret life of objects both found and collected that reside in a world within a world, and cinematic journeys of cathartic experiences.
