Sensate Cinema

The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) presents Sensate Cinema: Practices for Slow Encounters: A Festival for Camera & Body.

Bringing their respective forms of documentary filmmaking and performance into conversation they ask: “How do we look with the body, not at the body?” Rosskam and Olinghouse will engage the diverse learning community of UMBC in their praxis-based research through a series of public programs including a screening of short film/video works and an experimental lecture.
