Midnight Kino - 2013

Crucial in inspiring the growth of the independent film movement, the phenomenon of the Midnight Movie has celebrated the voices of many who have occupied the spaces of the strange and offbeat. Midnight Kino is a meditation on The Midnight Movie. Through mash up style editing with reference to the Dadaist Cut-up technique, Midnight Kino re-works a body of cult Midnight films into a single video piece that pays homage to the subcultural phenomenon that helped shape modern day cinema.

Midnight Kino screened as part of Thrilling Night Cinema!! - a series of short videos that played at the Carlton Cinema in downtown Toronto during Nuit Blanche 2013.
