The new season of the Austin Museum of Art’ annual television showcase of international film and video, The Territory, begins this May on KLRU. The Territory features fourteen programs that blend experimental, documentary, narrative and animated shorts from around the world.
The Territory’s 32 season highlights the work of artists from Texas, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, The Netherlands, Australia, Argentina, Columbia, Korea, and Israel. Within the 30-minute format, artists experiment with techniques and subjects in a condensed format similar to a short story. These film and video shorts are recognized as vibrant sub-genre of independent voices in the media world. The Territory brings these challenging works directly to the PBS audience across Texas — thereby stretching conventional television boundaries.
