Director Biography - Malic Amalya & Nathan Hill

Malic Amalya and Nathan Hill make experimental 16mm films and digital and analog videos with electronic musical scores. Visceral and cacophonous, their films traverse gritty landscapes of abandoned buildings, melting celluloid, and queer fetishes. Their work lingers on minute gestures and decaying objects, making the discarded, the abject, and the perverse precious.

Malic & Nathan have been collaborating since 2014. Their work has exhibited in art galleries, experimental film festivals, and radical queer spaces throughout the US and Europe, including Collectif Jeune Cinema's What's the Fuck? Fest***! in Paris, MIX NYC, and the Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival in Chicago. Their essay film "Magnetic Resonance" won the Audience Choice Award at the 2016 Crossroads Artist-Made Film Festival in San Francisco.

Malic holds an MA in History and Theory of Contemporary Art from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He teaches film production at the California College of the Arts. Malic and Nathan live and work together in Oakland, California.
