Digital Filmmaking at UC Irvine is proud to announce that “Two Points of Failure”, a film directed by Michael Moshe Dahan (MFA 2014, UC Irvine Department of Art) has been selected as one of the films to be screened at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York City this week. The festival screening of the film will take place April 23, 25, 26, and 27, 2014.
Dahan’s experimental film enlisted the help of several digital filmmaking students from our department to help out on set for his film.
“Two Points of Failure” frames the demise of analogue film technology (1976-2013) and takes as its primary subject matter Godard’s failed prototype for a compact 35mm camera. Named the Aaton 35-8, this apparatus, while small and portable, suffered from myopia and was simply too loud. “Two Points of Failure” (2013) is about this camera that could not see; the film functions as an index of a disappearance.“Two Points of Failure” was completed with funds from the Medici Circle Grant and the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts and was made with the assistance of Lana Linet, Maria Guerrero and Lauren Fong through the Department of Art’s undergraduate independent study program.
