I first came upon filmmaker Jem Cohen (wiki) (Video Data Bank) in a 2002 show at EYEBEAM. He was showing Chain, a new three channel piece shot in 16mm film, with a fantastic soundtrack by Godspeed You Black Emperor. The film washes the viewer with images in a Koyaanisqatsi (wiki) style and I remember his film being the highlight of that show so It will be interesting to see him talk tonight.
