MARATHON SCREENINGS is a series of salon-style film & video presentations that invites LA-based and international artists to share their work and engage in meaningful dialogue. Taking place on Sunday evenings at a private residence or artist-run space, each screening begins or ends with a communal dinner. The program includes films that range from short, conceptual videos to feature-length experimental documentaries, as well as performances, lectures, song and music. Intimate and thoughtful, the gatherings allow for invited artists to connect with attending participants and explore issues of identity, historical consciousness and cultural constructions in a shifting geopolitical landscape.
The series is organized by LA-based independent curator Asha Bukojemsky.
