Kelly Sears will be visiting the Coppola Theater to present her amazing work as part of the CINE 650 Master Class.
Kelly Sears is an experimental animator who cuts up and collages imagery from American culture and politics to intervene with the history embedded in the frame. Working with appropriated images ranging from thrift store cast-offs to archival material, she uses animation to rebuild American histories that shift between the official and the uncanny while exploring contemporary narratives of power, such as manifest destiny, occupation and surveillance.
Her work has screened at nearly every major museum and film festival, from the NY MOMA to the Sundance Film Festival and everything in between. http://www.kellysears.com/
