New American Independent Cinema

Over the past few months, the HFA has proudly hosted screenings by local directors Andrew Bujalski and Alex Karpovsky. These filmmakers represent a group of exciting voices that have invaded the national independent film scene and discovered innovative new means for distribution and promotion. This series presents a sampling of recent American independent film which has brought a new energy to the well-trod path of the film festival circuit. Many of these films explore the growing distance in interpersonal relationships as people are inundated with technological devices designed to facilitate communication. Others are contemplating the ever-tenuous boundary between fiction and nonfiction, in works which construct exhilarating new languages of cinema.
