On June 26, Residency Unlimited is proud to present the film screening of 4 newly created short film and video works that were realized for Special Features 2014. Special Features 2014 is a film production program designed to support the creation of short films and videos by New York City based artists. Between March and June 2014, 4 selected artists participated in RU’s residency program for 1 month each.

RU launched the first edition of Special Features in 2010 by converting an art gallery in Lower East Side into a low cost film studio and inviting 12 local artists to create a compelling piece over the course of one day each.

Total run-time approx 25mins, followed by a Q&A.

SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES - 6min

Gragasin scouted Residency Unlimited’s space and found a peculiar hand-painted sign in the bathroom that read “SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES,” which inspired her to create this oddball action film.

SONG FOR 360 COURT STREET

Running time: 3:00

This video piece responds to the unique situation of having living spaces and the Residency Unlimited gallery space built within the architectural structure of a former church. 4 singers perform a hymn based on a canticle written by St Francis of Assisi in 1224, in 4 part harmony, separately in 4 different spaces that reside within the church walls, and come together at the end in the gallery space.
