Presented by Barron Sherer Studio Project, in collaboration with Miami Beach Film Society.

This screening is an intermedial presentation of two Miami-centric mid-1950s film noirs made by low to mid-budget film director Fred F. Sears (EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS). Here, Sears’ THE MIAMI STORY (1954) and MIAMI EXPOSE (1956), both well-paced and full of recognizable genre conventions, are experienced together side simultaneously in a digital composite from recently scanned 16mm motion picture film prints. Emboldened by digital technology and a (very loose) videographic style of two films screened simultaneously: an aesthetic twin image effect of MIAMI STORY / MIAMI EXPOSE emphasizes narrative structure, plotting, pace, and even notions of doubling and repetition as visual tropes, compositions, and even costumes re-appear. The experiencer engaging the films in this manner may notice a transformative work. “Videographics” is a relatively new creative practice evolving out of the work of film scholars, contemporary artists, and cinephiliacs as their relationships with cinema access and critical culture become more dynamic.
