GRADUATE STUDENT MICHAEL MOSHE DAHAN AT ROTTERDAM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Michael Moshe Dahan's film "Two Points of Failure" (2013) has been officially selected to have its International Premiere in competition at the Rotterdam International Film Festival (RIFF) between January 22 and February 2, 2014.   The film was previously screened at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in Los Angeles as part of "Specters of Godard" where the artist spoke alongside Kerry Tribe and Constanze Ruhm in a panel discussion moderated by Juli Carson.

Conceived and directed by Dahan (MFA 2014, Department of Art) and Produced by N. Braxton Pope, "Two Points of Failure" frames the demise of analogue film technology (1976-2013) and takes as its primary subject matter Godard's failed prototype for a compact 35mm camera.  Named the Aaton 35-8, this apparatus, while small and portable, suffered from myopia and was simply too loud.  "Two Points of Failure" (2013) is about this camera that could not see; the film functions as an index of a disappearance.
