Get to Greenpoint this month for highly original, experimental film.

On April 2, the newish space MOVES shares its favorite videos and artists for a night of new cinema that ranges from the cute to the avant-garde.

First up though, there’s a presentation from video artist Roxie Turner, who’s also an instructor at 3rd Ward in Bushwick.

Then, the couple that brought you the adorable short, “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On,” is back for more, as Jenny Slate and Dean Fleisher-Camp present a new film that’s sure to then make the Internet rounds.

It’s all warming up for a screening of “Video Musics II: Sun Wu Kong,” Alexis Gideon’s beautiful — and strange — reimagining of the 16th-century Chinese novel, “Journey to the West,” which follows the trials and tribulations of the Monkey King.

The hour-long screening of the psychedelic, dream-like tale features live musical accompaniment from the renowned multimedia artist, who’s on the drum machine, plays guitar, sings and raps to the video opera.

It’s just like YouTube, only live.

Film night at MOVES (214 Franklin St. near Calyer Street in Greenpoint, no phone), April 2 at 8 pm. $7. For info, visit
