The Interior

The Interior & other work by Jonathan Rattner
Thurday, January 23rd 7PM
North Asheville Library, 1030 Merrimon Avenue


The Interior: January, the Alaskan Interior, 56 mushing dogs, 4 humans, 5 hours of sunlight. This observational work – shot on both 16mm and digital video – examines the interior worlds of its subjects and explores how to write with limited light.

Jonathan Rattner is an intermedia artist who primarily produces experimental documentary films and videos. In his work he employs a mixture of documentary (found footage, interviews, historical research) and lyrical (soft-focus imagery, collage, jump cuts, non-diagetic sound design, long-duration wide shots) filmic elements.

Jonathan will be here, IN PERSON for a Q&A!
