Independent Film Series – a Cultural Exchange:
Local Filmmaker’s Showcase: featuring Chris H. Lynn
Mon. May 18, 2015
7pm (one-hour program, followed by discussion)
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.
Here are some exciting events I will be taking part in the next few months.

Next week I am off to Salisbury University to deliver a talk and screen some of my films for the visiting artist lecture series (3/12/15). I am really grateful to have the opportunity to showcase my work and to discuss the audiovisual, landscapes, field recordings, and other things with the students of SU. Here is a link to the event. This is part of their exhibition Alternative Topographies In the meantime, below is a clip from a new work I will screen for the lecture along with super 8 films.
A special thanks to Li Xiaoxing for taking a number of us to TonJing last summer. A distinctive place along the banks of the Yangtze River in Jiangsu Province. More on this later
Robert Robertson’s new book arrived last night!
I am really honored and moved to be included in this work.
The text is beautifully written and quite suitable for pedagogical purposes, practitioners, or for someone just venturing into cinema studies.
A must read on the audiovisual!
Here are some links to purchase-
Thanks again Robert!
