Sara Magenheimer will be in conversation with Peter Rose after the screening.
The work of Philadelphia filmmaker Peter Rose concisely embodies the concerns of the “Puzzling” series: the navigation and unraveling of semiotic systems, collisions of sense and non-sense, and the implications of the act of looking. Two major works from the early 1980s, THE MAN WHO COULD NOT SEE FAR ENOUGH and THE PRESSURES OF THE TEXT, frame these ideas with Rose’s signature combination of intellectual rigor, technical facility, and sense of play. Representing Rose’s work with computers in the 1990s, his short video GENESIS highlights the contradictory and simultaneous experiences of distance and intimacy afforded by technology. A Guggenheim and NEA Fellow, Rose has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the Centre Pompidou, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and Anthology Film Archives.
