Coming up next at Kinetic Cinema, our friend Kat Green will present an evening of films that follow the path of a dance filmmaker turning into a pyromaniac sculptor, and the unlikely ways that those things relate to one another. Starting with the challenges of color, light, and camera movement, Kat Green found herself going down a rabbit hole of cause and effect, leading her to play with the ideas of telling a story through minutia, cadence, and finally making inanimate objects dance.
Kat Green has been working in film, video, and live event production since 1997, and building interactive art since 2006. In that time, she has created documentaries, music videos, short films, web series, and visual art with the goals of finding untold stories, playing with physics, and generally making pretty things to look at.
