Tonight: Tehran-born, Brooklyn-based artist Raha Raissnia presents her film work followed by a Q&A. Raissnia’s work is the result of an iterative process: footage shot on Super-8, 16mm, digital, and even mobile phone is manipulated in the studio—projected onto paintings and screens, integrating found materials and additional imagery—and re-shot, yielding densely layered celluloid films.
