The Broken Altar
Mike Rollo
16mm on Video., 20 min., 2012, Canada

All the Memory in the World
Mike Olenick
Video, 72 min., 2013, USA, World Premiere

“Years in the making and edited from over 400 feature films, All the Memory in the World is a feature-length stream of consciousness meditation focusing on cinema, memory, photography, identity, and dreams.

Mike Olenick is a filmmaker, editor, cinematographer, and photographer. In his work, he obsessively mines archives of information – often cinematic, and he appropriates, remembers, restages, and re-edits this material into other cinematic works.
