Hyattsville Branch Library
The Hyattsville branch welcomes Chris H. Lynn, filmmaker, sound artist, educator and curator to screen various landscape films, including his Trilogy of Summer, and a new Super 8 film.
The digital images and Super 8 films capture the subtle rhythms of movement, light, and sound in urban and rural landscapes (including landscapes in China, where he has filmed extensively since 2008). His work has been screened and exhibited around the globe and has recently been featured in the book Cinema and the AudioVisual Imagination by Robert Robertson. His sound work consists of field recordings, minimal compositions and audio from his films. His latest collection, The Old East Coast was released on the EchoMusic label. Chris also curates the Experimental Film Program Urban/Rural Landscapes for the Utopia Film Festival in Greenbelt, Maryland, which he co-founded in 2005. He has also curated the 2010 Takoma Park Experimental Film Festival, and occasionally programs films for the Sonic Circuits monthly showcase. Currently he is the Filmmaker-in-Residence at the Hyattsville Library.
All are invited to this community event to support and celebrate the work of Prince George’s County independent filmmakers. Refreshments will be served.
