Room H.264

SERIES
Room H.264

January 5–15
An open-ended homage to Wim Wenders’s documentary Room 666, in which filmmakers are sequestered alone with a camera in a hotel room to answer anew a question originally posed by Wenders: "Is cinema a dead language, an art which is already in the process of decline?" In addition to a film created from footage recorded out of BAMcinemafest in June 2016, an entirely new film will be shot, edited, finished, and screened all within the dates of First Look 2018. The production process will be accompanied by a gallery installation featuring raw footage that will be updated throughout the festival.
