New Vision Cinema Series

Curated by Michael Park

Thursday September 29th at 8:00 PM

Le Petit Versailles, 346 east Houston Street (Lower East Side).

Continuing in the tradition of the Invisible Film Series, the New Vision Cinema Series presents a broad range of film and videos from an equally-diverse selection of cineastes. Founded in 2000 by Jennifer MacMillan as the Invisible Film Series, the New Vision Cinema Series has endeavored to showcase the talents of some of the finest local (and sometimes, not-so- local) independent film and video talents of the Greater New York City area. Since its inception, the series has shown works of such notables as Stan Brakhage, Mike Kuchar, Nick Zedd, Jennifer Reeves, and Bradley Eros. With the departure of Ms. MacMillan from its fold (a hard act to follow), the series has been under the sole curatorship of its former co-curator, Michael Park.

The New Vision Cinema Series is a short film and video series focussing on all the various genres of short film, be they experimental, narrative, animation, documentary, or even music video, and any combination thereof. Each installment of the series runs from 90 minutes -2 hours, and will include an average of ten artists works each.

An exhibition by Alexis Pace

September 1-30

Opening September 1 - 6:30 -8pm.

Visiting hours
Thurs.- Sun. 2-7pm.

Alexis Pace is a NYC based artist and designer,her work often walks the thin line between the two disciplines. With a background in sculpture and education in Industrial Design (MiD from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, NY) her passion for manipulation of materials in evident in all avenues of her work.

Her background in Industrial Design has inspired her to mix different materials and mediums as the inspiration dictates. Sculpture, photography, mixed media, and popsicle sticks.
Her recent experiments have been treading the line between organic decay,
destruction and manipulation.
Inspired by the book “When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies” by Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter, this site-specific installation seeks to transform Petit Versailles into a Hanging Garden. Playing with how disembodied women’s bodies have become:dissected, rejected, mutated and recreated, this project seeks to turn the dismemberment on its head to empower both the subjects and the viewers." &

Vol de Nuit celebrates night and nature in song and film. The music by Debussy, Bellini, Schoenberg, Schubert and Villa-lobos, among others, spans eras, musical styles and geography. Deeply romantic, in Italian, French, German and Portuguese, these songs draw the listener into the nocturnal realms, offering access to the deeper layers of the unconscious that we encounter only in dreams or flights of insanity. Vol de nuit (night flight) is a journey of the human spirit through the sky, illuminated by the stars and the moon.
