Warren Sonbert was one of the seminal figures working in American experimental film. He started making films in 1966 and before he was 20 years old, the New York cinematheque offered him his first career retrospective. Exclusively distributed in Europe by Light Cone, many institutions organized a retrospective of his work since his death: Guggenheim museum (1998), the museum of Modern Art of San Francisco (2000), the Pompidou Center (2002),etc. Jon Gartenberg, who took part in the restoration work of his films, will be there to present the screenings.
