In conjunction with NEAT, The CJM presents CLEAT (Cinematic Lo-fi Experiments in Art and Technology). Three movies offer a refreshing break from anesthetizing CGI spectacle, showcasing filmmakers using handmade special effects to creatively realize their ambitious (and sometimes delirious) visions. Films selected by noted Bay Area film blogger and independent curator, David Robson.

Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz play lovers past, present, and future in this emotionally intense fantasy. Directed by Darren Aronofsky who creates fantastic worlds with macro photography and minimal CGI (2006; 96min).

Screened in conjunction with NEAT.
