January 25: Maryland Morning Screen Test presents Karen Yasinsky
Maryland Morning Screen Test film series presents Karen Yasinsky
Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm
The Windup Space 12 W. North Ave., Baltimore
Admission is Free and Drinks are Cheap
Karen Yasinsky turned to filmmaking to surmount the limitations of painting, and the illustrated and stop-motion animations she’s created over the last decade are transfixing. They’re often set in nature, but they never feel quite natural. They center on characters who can convey with just the slightest gesture how difficult it is to truly connect with another person. “We are defined by our relationships,” Yasinsky says, “but we’re always alone.”
Maryland Morning arts and culture ace Tom Hall will talk with Karen Yasinsky about her work in front of a live audience, and then we’ll screen a selection of clips from her films. We’ll save time at the end for audience questions and conversation.
As always, the Screen Test is free and open to the public. Maryland Morning will air Tom’s conversation with Karen Yasinsky on Friday, January 27.
The Maryland Morning Screen Test has been around for over a year and a half now! We’ve gotten to know the work of many talented Maryland filmmakers, such as Matt Porterfield, Pierre and Jamyla Bennu, Eric Dyer, and Catherine Pancake. You can check out the interviews from earlier Screen Tests—and see Christopher Moore’s wonderful photos of the events—here.
