Contemporary Screen + The Artists Cinema

During this summer's Contemporary Screen series of new international releases, you'll also see new short films by five leading international artists. These commissioned projects were made specifically to be screened before feature films--a lost tradition in cinema exhibition. The films have toured movie theaters in Britain, but the Wexner Center screenings mark the North American premieres of most of the shorts.

"A refreshing whiff of mischief!"--THE GUARDIAN

In the documentary Czech Dream, two enterprising student filmmakers work with a team of marketing experts to whip the public into a frenzy over the opening of a new supermarket. The catch: the market doesn't exist. (90 mins., 35mm)

Phil Collins's he who laughs last laughs longest documents a laughing contest organized by the Turner Prize–nominated artist. (6 mins., 35mm)
The artist conceived of and partially produced this short during his Wexner Center residency last year. His video installation They Shoot Horses was exhibited by the Wexner Center (at the Belmont Building) in 2005; el mundo no escuchara (the world won't listen) was shown in The Box in March 2006.
