About This Screening
From the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, California comes a 16-part film and video series from the recently published book Radical Light, exploring the themes, movements, and history of alternative film and video in the Bay Area. With two nights of wildly different work, this presentation with Cinema Project includes the 1953 found footage collage Odds and Ends by Jane Conger Belson Shimane, which pokes fun at the Beat culture of the time replete with faux-hipster narration. In a merger of chemistry and electronics, the second evening of work includes Loops, an unrelenting barrage of pulsing color, transferred from 16mm and reconstituted as video. Curator Steve Seid and filmmaker and video artist Loren Sears will be in attendance.
