Emerging Cinema at the Nevada Museum of Art

It appears the Nevada Museum of Art has not renewed a subscription to Emerging Cinema. Emerging Cinema has been the source of their film screenings over the last year. Most of the films screened at the NMA have been fantastic cultural resources, for cinephiles and other curious seekers. It is too bad, especially considering that I had an alternative cinema in my neighborhood. Let’s hope they can screen more films in less lean years.
The image is from the new film by Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno about Zidane, the great French futbol player (Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait). Some of you may remember the room at the SF MOMA late in 2007- remember that journey to SF?- full of monitors. That was Gordon's room of video projects.
From what I can tell this "documentary" is worth watching- keep an eye out. I'm particularly interested in how it might actually function in an experimental manner for a documentary (relative to some work I want to do down the road).
