Jaakko Pallasvuo’s short film Filter (2017) will have its World Festival Premiere at the 55th New York Film Festival, held from 28.9.–15.10 by Film Society Lincoln Center. The film is included in the experimental Projections section, curated by Dennis Lim (FSLC Director of Programming) and Aily Nash (independent curator). The screening of Program 4: First Person take place on Saturday, October 7 at 14:00 and on Sunday, October 8 at 17:00 at Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center.
Filter explores the ways in which nostalgia is experienced in the 21st century. Tracing a journey from Europe to New York City to Syracuse, the film considers the ways in which mediation can enhance or disrupt nostalgic sentiment. Integrating visual culture, music and performance, Filter examines the question of what is included and what excluded when memories are created.
