ASCENT: A film by Fiona Tan


Harold M. Williams Auditorium

Through a gray blanket of cloud, the contours of a mountain can be barely discerned. This is Mount Fuji, a volcano with many faces and of immeasurable cultural and symbolic significance. Exceptional and diverse photographs from the past 150 years form the basis for this art-film project made entirely with stills; a filmic experiment balancing documentary and fiction. North American premiere. Fiona Tan is the 2016–2017 Artist in Residence at the Getty Research Institute.
