MLS student Jes Reyes’ film “Here, Mom” will be screened as part of Ae’s Art House Film Festival on July 25th:
Altered Esthetics (Ae) will host a film/video exhibit —— Ae’s Art House Film Festival —— at The Southern Theater located on the West Bank in Minneapolis. Half of the filmmakers are women, and many are local, but submissions came in from across the nation, Canada, and France!
The Art House Film Festival will feature the works of 20 artists. Artwork exhibited will range in experimental, video essay, video poem, narrative, comedy, animation, silent, etc.; each with a length no longer than 20 minutes. Accepted artwork have been curated into four categories: The Unusual and Dream-Like, From the Inner Life, The Quirky and the Funny, and Exploring the B-Movie. Films are new or previously exhibited work.
“Here, Mom” is Jes’ creative project for MLS. It will be featured in the category of: From the Inner Life. Another of her films, “Yellow House,” was exhibited earlier this year as part of Artists in Storefronts 5: Cineteca group exhibition. Jes’ photography has also been included in two group exhibitions this year with Ae Without Walls, Altered Esthetics’ pop-up exhibition tour of the Twin Cities.

I was recently invited to do an interview with Local Artist Interviews. Managed by Michael McGraw, Minnesota artists are given a platform for greater exposure. So excited I was able to participate!
just changed the title of my thesis film…again.
A Mind of Winter
Last week, I completed filming for video poem/essay that I have been working on with poet, Katie Rensch. She is a creative writing graduate student at the University of Minnesota.
Overall, the video explores the monotony of winter as well as the way it lingers like a stranger. In the end though winter becomes a hope for renewal.
We will be working on audio over the next couple weeks and should be ready mid-April to show.
