Named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2012, Ian Clark’s latest work is an observational approach to the documentary film genre, a strategy that marries well with his previous narrative work, notable for its lack of dialogue and desaturated action. MMXIII is an experimental portrait that explores phenomenological subtlety, intersections of construct and vérité, and the ways in which technology, landscape, and beauty coalesce. “Here, an artist’s reflexive gestures investigate moving images and the nature of image construction, blurring the lines between cinema, still photography, and performance art.”—New Orleans Film Society.
