"Fast Film: Here and Gone in Sixty Seconds" 
Each moment is sandwiched between the past, which is fixed in our memories in important personal and historical narratives now "gone," and the future which we can determine by our actions in the present by constructive social agency in the "here." This screening of 60 second shorts will explore the vast array of what the “here” and “gone” can connote in experimental film as it pushes the envelope of possibilities into the future.
