Ultra-seeing is an exploration of experimental cinema from the perspective of synesthesia, visual music, and visualization of music.

Each hour-long session will bring together major works from the rich collection of Light Cone, a French organization dedicated to the diffusion and conservation of experimental cinema, and contemporary productions from local and international artists.
