Saturday, May 2, 2015 • 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green Street), Kanbar Forum

Included with museum admission.

Unexpected twists, red herrings, and visual trickery take center stage in this surprising collection. With slowly revealed images and abrupt narrative turns, these works exploit our suspension of disbelief in the stories unfolding onscreen to make space for questions and reframe our cinematic expectations.
