SHORT CUTS V: IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT, DARKNESS PREVAILS

SHORT CUTS

A program of short avant-garde works presented by Cinema Project and the Northwest Film Center.

69 Minutes    

Interests: Short Cuts.


A PREFACE TO RED

A PREFACE TO RED

DIRECTOR: Jonathan Schwartz - (Turkey/United States)

“A single recording, recorded in a tunnel that one passes through after exiting a boat taking you from one continent to another, where people are selling bright colored toys and bright white sneakers.”—Jonathan Schwartz (6 mins.)


BY FOOT-CANDLE LIGHT

BY FOOT-CANDLE LIGHT

DIRECTOR: Mary Helena Clark - (United States)

“Scenes from the proscenium wings. A film imagined and recounted by foot-candle light. You close your eyes and suddenly it is dark.”—Mary Helena Clark (9 mins.)


IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT, DARKNESS PREVAILS

IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT, DARKNESS PREVAILS

DIRECTOR: Fern Silva - (Brazil/United States)

“Silva’s film suggests a future already arrived, merging the destruction with the creation of life. ... The film resides in a well of deep time, civilizational history swallowed by the life of the planet.”—Genevieve Yue, Reverse Shot (13 mins.)


SOUNDING GLASS

DIRECTOR: Sylvia Schedelbauer - (Germany)

A man in a forest is subject to a flood of impressions; structurally rhythmic waves of images and sounds give form to his introspection. (10 mins.)


SACK BARROW

DIRECTOR: Ben Rivers - (Great Britain)

A sulphurous portrait of a London suburb plating factory established in 1931 for limbless and disabled war veterans. Documenting a vanished world, the film’s decelerated rhythm and focus on surface—from chemical aggregate to nostalgia-era pin-up girls—lend a portentous feel. (21 mins.)


SEA SERIES #10

SEA SERIES #10

DIRECTOR: John Price - (Canada)

“Hovering at the brink of widescreen extinction with Fukushima in mind.”—John Price (10 mins.)
