The New York Film Festival calls Lewis Klahr "one of the most original artists of his generation." We're proud to screen his new feature film, fresh off its premiere at the Museum of Modern Art. Sixty Six is a milestone achievement, the culmination of Klahr's work in animated collage filmmaking. Elliptical tales of sunshine noir and classic Greek mythology are inhabited by comic book superheroes and European pinups who wander through midcentury modernist architectural photographs. It's a hypnotic dream of 1960s and 1970s Pop.
Lewis Klahr's work has been shown at prestigious venues worldwide ranging from the Whitney Biennial to the Toronto International Film Festival. He's won numerous awards and grants, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and National Society of Film Critics special citation.
