Few media artists bring together the personal and raw nature of documentary with the intimacy and artistic beauty of experimental filmmaking as effortlessly as Naomi Uman. This collection, comprised of five short 16mm works, features Naomi’s instantly recognizable aesthetic of scratched, dyed, and hand-processed imagery and defies the established boundaries of experimental film, narrative film, documentary filmmaking and social commentary.
