“Here is Always Somewhere Else” 3/13

Norbert Tan, VC Foundation director reminds us:The Ventura College Spring 2008 Arts and Lecture Series continues with the screening of the 2006 documentary “Here is Always Somewhere Else,” followed by a discussion with Mary Sue Anderson, Ader’s widow, and filmmaker Rene Daalden, on March 13 at 7:00 p.m. in lecture hall UV1 on the Ventura College campus.

As seen through the eyes of fellow emigrant filmmaker Rene Daalder, the picture becomes a sweeping overview of contemporary art films as well as an epic saga of the transformative powers of the ocean. The film features artists Tacita Dean, Rodney Graham, Marcel Broodthaers, Ger van Elk, Charles Ray, Wim T. Schippers, Chris Burden, Fiona Tan, Pipilotti Rist and many others. The film has been nominated for numerous awards at film festivals around the world.
