Baltic Analog Lab aicina ciemos uz tikšanos ar divām mūsu šī brīža rezidentēm - Megumi Ohguri no Japānas un Manon VanScoder no ASV (informāciju lasīt zemāk), kas pie mums strādā pie saviem fotogrāfijā balstītiem projektiem un šajā prezentācijā pastāstīs par savu praksi un šī brīža aktuālo projektu.
Pēc prezentācijas tiks demonstrēta arī filma no Baltic Analog Lab 16mm filmu arhīva, kurā sastopamas dažādas dokumentālas, kā arī amatieru veidotas filmas. Šoreiz skatīsimies dokumentālo filmu "The Islander" par Barras salu un tās izolētajiem iedzīvotājiem Skotijā.
Filma tiks rādīta angļu valodā.
Līdzi var ņemt savus dzērienus, kā arī ja laiks būs labs, gatavosim ārā BBQ (Informācija tiks precizēta)
