Location: McKnight Art Center, Room 210

Conceived and selected by artist and filmmaker Zoe Beloff and film curator Rebecca Cleman, this film series accompanies Beloff’s multimedia exhibition, Emotions Go to Work, on display at the Ulrich Museum of Art on the WSU campus from Jan. 23 to March 29. Elaborating the exhibition's central themes, concerns, and ideas, each screening will be accompanied by Notes created by the series curators.

On Jan. 24, the theme will be "Sentient Objects." In these two films, technology and infrastructure rise up and rebel. These technological and engineered objects, clocks, typewriters, vehicles, even bridges are the very things that normally grease the wheels of capitalism and keep everything running efficiently. In full scale revolt, are they acting out what we, the workers, can only dream of? To turn on our bosses and refuse to follow orders? Should we join with the machines, or should we run for our lives?

Featured films for Jan. 24:

Ha! Ha! Ha! (1934)
directed by Dave Fleischer (7 min.)

Maximum Overdrive (1986)
directed by Stephen King (98 min.)

On Feb. 21, Beloff will be present in person to answer questions and participate in a post-screening discussion.

Emotions Go to Work: The Film Series is presented by the Ulrich Museum of Art and co-hosted by mamafilm independent microcinema.

All screenings are free and open to the public.
