The monthly LUNA Park Experimental Film & Media series continues with REVOLT/RESTRAINT: How We Refrain, a two-day program of films, readings and discussions at the Melwood Screening Room. Tonight, renowned filmmaker Deborah Stratman screens and discusses her experimental documentary, The Illinois Parables, on original 16mm. The 2016 hour-long film features vignettes, or “parables,” about violence, resistance and technologies, among other topics. The Saturday program features New York City-based emerging women artists, including Lex Brown, Brook Hsu, Tamara Santibanez and guest curator, Audra Wist. The whole thing wraps up with a panel discussion relating these works to Chantal Akerman’s influential 1975 film, Jeanne Dielman. - Al Hoff
