Chicagoans: Check out twohundredfiftysixcolors this week


4/18 at 6pm, 4/21 at 1pm at the Gene Siskel Film Center

twohundredfiftysixcolors is an ambitious film comprised of thousands of GIFs to invoke a conversation about the art form and how GIFs can relate to the early processes of cinema. Considering just how popular animated GIFs have become over recent years due to their prevalence in internet memes, it's interesting to see how filmmakers Eric Fleischauer and Jason Lazarus use the film to make this distinction.

Those in and around Chicago can attend the premiere of twohundredfiftysixcolors on April 18 at 6:00pm at the Gene Siskel Film Center. A second screening is also scheduled for Sunday, April 21 at 1:00pm. Both screenings will be followed by conversations and discussions with Fleischauer and Lazarus. More information on the film can be read on the film's website. Ticket information for the screenings can be found here. A sample GIF from the film is located below the jump.
