New Nature - a series of year-long encounters between artists and climate scientists from around the world-presents, in collaboration with Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI), two programs of short films that confront the human conception of "nature" and explore all that is unnamable, unknowable, and wild.
The series will be available for free online, through a password-protected link to MoMI's Vimeo page, from December 3-11.
Viewers will be required to RSVP in advance.
They will receive a password-protected link, which will allow them to view the entire series online for the duration of one week.

about the museum of the moving image (momi)

Museum of the Moving Image’s mission is to advance the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. Despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the building closed since March 14, the Museum continues to fulfill its mission online through live conversations with artists, filmmakers, scholars, media educators, and other industry professionals; articles published in MoMI's online film magazine Reverse Shot and science and film resource Sloan Science & Film; access to the Museum's collection of more than 130,000 objects; and the online presentation of a range of films—including acclaimed new release features and award-winning science shorts, plus archived video of Museum events, and more. In August 2020, the Museum co-created the Queens Drive-In, in partnership with Rooftop Films and New York Hall of Science, to revive communal moviegoing in a safe environment.
