The Super 8 Cinema of John Porter: Condensed Rituals and Camera Dances

FRI, APR 23 / 7 pm
A Live film performance w/ John Porter
Special Event pricing – all admissions $5

Super 8 filmmaker, photographer, performer and writer John Porter is probably Canada’s best known spokesman for super 8 filmmaking, surpassing even One Take Super 8 Event director Alex Rogalski. Known in his native Toronto as the king of super 8, John has made more than 300 short films, mostly super 8, and has performed more than 80 solo shows internationally. Using film as a visual art like painting, many of his short films are silent, made in series, and he only shows his originals (no copies).

During this presentation, Porter will perform live in front of the audience while screening a selection of his works. Porter’s films are dynamic, humorous and revealing, enjoyed by people of all ages (families are encouraged to bring their kids!). They reveal and highlight the excitement and risk taking of creating a super 8 film.
