WNY Filmmaker Spotlight – Filmmaker Carl Lee
Join us at Fitz Books and Waffles on Saturday, October 14th at 2:00 pm for a screening and discussion with Buffalo’s own Carl Lee.
Carl Lee is a media artist based in Buffalo, NY. Since the 1990s, he has been making films, videos, and multi-channel installation work that explore the built environment, personal spaces, perception, nostalgia, and the spatialization of time using simple formal means and optical tricks. Currently, he is working on a multi-screen installation about Unity Island, located in the Niagara River off the shores of Buffalo, NY. His work, which investigates distance and intimacy and the precarity of images on our screens and in our heads, has been screened and exhibited nationally and internationally. From 1997-2008, he was co-director of Termite TV Collective, a media group founded in 1992 that produces formally innovative personal and political programming for television, the web, and live performance. Termite’s work has been featured at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, public television outlets, and in festivals worldwide.
