Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Crosstown Arts Film Series presents Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV at Crosstown Theater.

Amanda Kim / 2023 / 109 minutes / Not Rated
Tickets: $5 at the door
Doors at 6:30 p.m. | Films begin at 7:00 p.m. (sharp!) at Crosstown Theater

The father of video art and coiner of the term “electronic superhighway,” Nam June Paik was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Director Amanda Kim tells the remarkable story of Paik as a citizen of the world and trailblazing artist, who both saw the present and predicted the future with astonishing clairvoyance. With Steven Yeun reading Paik’s own written words — showcasing the artist’s strategic playfulness and immense creativity — Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV is a celebration of perhaps the most modern artist of all time.

The Crosstown Arts Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground, and documentary features.
