Joel Schlemowitz Short Experimental Films
Experimental filmmaker Joel Schlemowitz's many talents are showcased in this compilation of 45 of his short films. Known for his quirky avant-garde style, Schlemowitz creates vibrant, visually poetic pieces that resonate on an emotional level. Using a variety of cinematic techniques, the award-winning, New York-based artist's bold films range from playful to provocative and meld the qualities of light and motion to create unique compositions.

Joel Schlemowitz is a wizard of cinema, and this collection of short experimental films is a marvel to behold. Each piece is a unique gem -- quirky, provocative, playful, often handmade, and always daring -- celebrating Joel's astonishing mastery of the tools of filmmaking, and his poetic grasp on the art of cinema.
