About This Screening

The eight films in our annual collaboration with the Portland International Film Festival represent a diverse group of artists working in equally diverse ways. Rebecca Meyers' Things We Want To See is a beautifully constructed work that looks at Alaskan ice floes and the aurora boealis. Karen Mirza and Brad Butler's The Space Between layers abstract surface manipulations with footage shot in India. Market Street is Tomonari Nishikawa's portrait of San Francisco's Market Street shot and edited in camera frame by frame to create a lush geometric abstraction of the sights of a city. Los Caudales is a black and white study of light and movement in rivers, creeks and shorelines by Timoleon Wilkins. Noel is a part of Hope Tucker's ongoing Obituary Project, a series of videos that explore the obituary as a social construction. Juan Manuel Echavarría's Bocas de Cenzia is a sequence of seven songs, each written and sung by an individual who has experienced violence in their native Colombia. Curious About Existence by Emily vey Duke and Cooper Battersby is an episodic short with devoational songs, reflections on entropy, and otters talking about Nietzsche. The program concludes with Phil Solomon and Mark LaPore's Untitled (for David Gatten), a film they made for their friend David Gatten, as a prayer, an offering, a “get well soon” card.
