1985 | Chicago, USA.
Andrew Kim (b. 1985) is an experimental filmmaker who received his MFA from School of Film/Video at the California Institute of the Arts in 2013. His work is inspired by the material properties of cinema and its unique ability to reify abstract ideas and ineffable feelings. Combining formal experimentation with at concern for the phenomenology of the cinematic experience, Andrew’s films are an attempt to understand the movement of the mind. Ultimately, his films attempt to transcend the exact mechanics of motion pictures such that a film might articulate a new kind of knowledge.
Andrew’s films have screened at a variety of venues and festivals including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Festival du Nouveau Cinema (Montreal), Images Festival (Toronto), BAFICI (Buenos Aries), UnionDocs, and Los Angeles Filmforum, among others. Andrew lives in Los Angeles, California. There he is a staff member at the Echo Park Film Center and teaches film production at the California Institute of the Arts.
