Robert Fenz: The Camera in the World

The Camera in the World - 16mm Films by Robert Fenz

“Offers a poetic but political worldview.” – Mark Webber, 2011 BFI London Film Festival

Presented as part of the Jack H. Skirball Series

Duly hailed for his exquisite compositions and sympathetic feel for the rhythms of his cinematographic subjects, peripatetic filmmaker extraordinaire Robert Fenz also brings a keen contextual understanding to his lyrical 16mm explorations of the human condition around the globe. The program features the early breakout work Meditations on Revolution, Part V: Foreign City (2003, 32 min., b/w); Correspondence (2011, 30 min., color and b/w, silent), Fenz’s homage to the late ethnographic filmmaker Robert Gardner; La Nuit (2014, 12 min., silent), a haunting portrait of nighttime Marseilles; and Toros (2014, 6 min., b/w), a meditation on bullfighting. Fenz’s films have been screened at the Whitney Biennial, MoMA, Cinémathèque Française, and the Rotterdam and Locarno festivals, among other showcases.
