Canyon Cinema is excited to welcome Los Angeles-based filmmaker and expanded cinema artist Christina C Nguyen to the collection!

Christina C Nguyen’s work explores the periphery of human perception and experience. Her interest in systems results in the use of specific forms and structures to interface between the digital and analog methods of data and vision. She has screened at SF Crossroads, EXiS Seoul, Light Field in San Francisco, REDCAT, and Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles. She is from San Francisco, California, and earned her MFA in Film/Video at the California Institute of the Arts.

Two of Christina’s films are now available for rent from Canyon Cinema:

You Don’t Own Me (2015, 6 minutes, b&w, sound, digital file)

A study of the ecstasy and intimate quality of a performative gesture. The interiority of an artist. Leslie Gore performs “You Don’t Own Me” in 1964 at the T.A.M.I. Show.

Parallel Inquiries (2016, 10 minutes, color, sound, 16mm)
