PERSISTENCE OF REVISION
Public Lecture by Ross Lipman
Monday Oct 16, 18:00 -20:00
The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema is pleased to present a lecture by film archivist and filmmaker Ross Lipman about archival cinema and moving image restoration. The evening will include excerpts from Lipman’s feature NOTFILM (2015), which was named one of the top ten films of the year by ARTFORUM, SLATE, and many other magazines.
This will be an evening of archival cinema art: the practice and theory of moving image restoration. The talk will be peppered with examples from Lipman’s many restorations, presented in the context of his unique perspective on the restoration arts – a field that Lipman calls “the Gray Zone.”
Ross Lipman is an archivist, historian, and filmmaker specializing in restoration and archived-based image-making. From 1999 to 2015 he was a senior restorationist at the UCLA Film and Television archive. More recently, he has been working as a freelance archivist in individual projects at prestigious institutions in Los Angeles, Chicago, London, and Zurich. His most recent work, on Bruce Conner’s Crossroads, will be presented this year at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal.
