julie orlick (b. 1990, los angeles) resides in brooklyn, ny. she is an analogue/alternative photographer, avant-garde 16mm film maker, director & artist. her films reflect upon the absurdity and contingency of existence & maintain a timeless feel through adhering to analogue black and white techniques. the quirks and mishaps that happen while using film adds to the visual outcome of her craft that can truly be considered unique. all films are shot on a 16mm bolex, edited on a flatbed steenbeck, projected on 16mm.

online features/reviews:

"Filmed in a dingy Brooklyn basement, as well as one of our own beloved d.i.y. venues, Julie Orlick and her team of unsung romantic weirdos bring to Spectacle her latest and most enterprising short film, Silent Lovers, within a retrospective of Orlick’s works all shot in New York, and on glorious and grainy 16mm. An encounter with her films feels something like slipping out to the speakeasy and tending to a surreal bender with Kenneth Anger. Come indulge in a lavish feast of cake and cruelty, mermaids washed ashore, lecherous gazes, ladies lost in double exposure, murder and sugar cubes, and endless flowers all hot off the reel."
