7:00 PM – PROGRAM ONE: A LETTER TO THE LIVING – FREE ADMISSION

Reflections on states of being and ending. Working with the real, the imagined and the remembered, the artists in this program address death in both literal and figurative ways.

S.T.T.L., dir. Elisabeth Smolarz, 2011, USA, 4 min
As a woman folds laundry at a laundromat she delivers a detailed clinical account of the physical transformations that occur in the human body as it succumbs to cancer.

The Well of Representation, dir. Evan Meaney, 2012, USA, 7 min
From 16mm to 16 bit! Using Hollis Frampton’s Gloria! as a foundation, the film is a remake and reconsideration of this avant garde classic from 1979.

Algonquin, dir. Travis Shilling, 2011, Canada, 4 min
A brutal and poetic story of a wolf reincarnated in the world as a man.

To Mark the Shape, dir. JB Mabe, 2011, USA, 3 min
A fleeting portrait of a snowy landscape shot on expired film stock with a broken down camera.

Under the Shadow of Marcus Mountain, dir. Robert Schaller, USA, 2011, 6 min
Schaller’s stripped down 16mm filmmaking is the epitome of independent cinema; he uses manual processing, custom made emulsions and chemicals and shoots with pinhole cameras and other handmade devices.

Hoof, Tooth & Claw, dirs. Chu-Li Shewring, Adam Gutch, 2011, UK, 17 min
An affecting and sympathetic portrait of 86 year old farmer Betty French, her land and the various animals in her care: horses, cattle and a gnarled and greying pack of sheep.

where she stood in the first place, dir. Lindsay McIntyre, 2010, Canada, 10 min
McIntyre’s haunting and sparse film uses hand wrought black and white 16mm film.

Señora con Flores (Woman With Flowers), dir. Chick Strand, 1995, USA, 15 min
The film, a portrait of a Mexican flower vendor, is a perfect example of her empathetic ethnography.

9:00 PM – PROGRAM TWO: A PLACE IN THE WORLD – FREE ADMISSION

These four films reflect on distinct structures and environments, drawing out qualities of space, time architecture and weather.

Portrait De La Place Ville Marie, dir. Alexandre Larose, 2011, Canada, 3 min
Montreal’s Place Ville Marie is significant as for its underground city as its moderinist towers. In this film Larose frees the edifice from its foundations, allowing the forms to dance an abstract pas des deux against a dazzling blue sky.

East Hastings Pharmacy, dir. Antoine Bourges, 2011, Canada, 46 min
Bourges documents the daily routine of a typical pharmacy in Vancouver’s downtown Eastside. The architecture of the space is as much a character as the population which passes through it.

Third Law: N. Kedzie Blvd., dir. Mike Gibisser, 2011, USA, 7 min
Part three of a four part series, each focusing on a different location and a different law of thermodynamics. In this part Gibissier documents the change of seasons on North Kedzie Blvd. in Chicago.

The Home and the World, dir. Lucy Parker, 2011, UK, 19 min
Parker filmed the rural care facility pictured in this film over the duration of nine months. She returned to the place every two weeks, documenting the ways in which routines in weekly life are focused on nurture and development.
