Film Series: Pure Formalism

July 3, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Summer Series continues with a night of abstract, experimental pieces. Featuring lots of 16mm projection alongside some digital.

Film still remains one of the newer media. In this program, we showcase some historic and contemporary (as well as local!) investigations of the moving image as an artistic media in and of itself. Scrap the narrative and conceptual mumbo jumbo, here we embrace the form to see how film uniquely contributes to the history of art. In the spirit of Stan Brakhage, we stand face to face with the image itself—and absorb.

PROGRAM (76m, not including breaks):
Castro Street (1966) — Bruce Baillie (10m)^
Game of Stones (1965) — Jan Svankmajer (9m)
Something Between Us (2015) — Jodie Mack (9m)^
