Flux and the Hammer Museum present a quarterly screening series featuring innovative short films, music videos, features, filmmaker retrospectives and the most visual work from around the globe. The November screening spotlights two incredibly talented directors: Martin de Thurah and Nacho Vigalondo and one amazing music talent: DJ Bunny Ears. As part of this month’s program, de Thurah will present the U.S. Premiere of his short Young Man Falling plus his best music videos, and Vigalonda will share some of his rare short films. The evening will include a courtyard after-party.
