Join the BAMPFA Student Committee for the fall 2018 iteration of CineSpin. Live student DJs and musicians will play a dynamic, original score over Jean Cocteau’s The Blood of a Poet. Allowing irrationality to gestate within each pregnant pause, Cocteau plays with narrative expectation, stringing together a series of discontinuous images that blend seamlessly into a work of surrealist and absurdist brilliance. We’ll also screen surprise short films. A small reception will be held in the atrium before the screening. We hope you’ll join us!
