Contemporary Mexican Cinema
Dec 12, 2013

CANCELLED

Join us for a special preview screening of artist Artemio's first feature-length film. Artemio, one of the dynamic Mexican artists featured in Inside Out, works in a variety of media, including video, sculpture, and installation. His experimental multimedia artworks - such as Rambo, 2001, in which he edited out the physical and verbal violence from the original movie, resulting in a 17-minute video - approach pop culture and current political events with humor and subversion.
