The Esker film screenings series responds to and reflects on our current exhibitions. We round out the summer film series with a double bill featuring: 'Time and Time and Again' and 'Raymond' (Dir. Nina Yuen, 2015, 11 mins), both films were suggested by artist Jason de Haan and relate to his current Esker exhibition 'oh for eyes! at night we dream of eyes!' on view until August 27.

'Time and Time and Again' is a film about time and art, based on the life and work of Icelandic artist Hreinn Friðfinnsson (b. 1943). Merging reality with fiction, the film uses selected works by Friðfinnsson as a springboard for a narrative. The ensuing story tells of a pair of twins who were separated at birth. One was brought up in the mountains of Iceland and the other below sea level in Amsterdam. Despite their shared genetics and birth date, the different forces of gravity in their environments have caused them to age differently.

Dir. Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir and Markús Þór Andrésson, 2014, 48 mins.
Icelandic, Finnish, and English with English subtitles

Free. Registration recommended.
