Dallas Videofest 2013 Expanded Cinema – MultipliCity


The 21st century urban life resembles a fragmented, complex tapestry, made up of multiplicity of the lived experiences, imaginings, visions, and memories of past experiences. The city itself serves as a complex canvas depicting a diverse range of relationships, architectures, cultures, and backgrounds, enabling city dwellers to build  multilayered narratives within their urban surroundings. Inspired by the richness of the urban life, participating artists in 'Expanded Cinema -MultipliCity' reflect on their perceptions of the city, both in terms of its diversity and wholeness.
