Video and installation artist Grahame Weinbren, the subject of the 2004 TFF documentary Frames, returns to the Tribeca Film Festival as a filmmaker with 25 Letters, a video project based on his 25 one-minute films which generate the letters of the alphabet. In this interactive presentation, Weinbren artfully underscores his belief that classic linear storytelling has been radically altered by our random access to digitalized of information and imagery.
Length: 30 minutes
