To Brush Against the Palm of Your Eye: Short Film and Video by Scott Fitzpatrick

Fri, Nov 23 / 7 pm
Introduced by Scott Fitzpatrick.

Scott Fitzpatrick is the winner of the 2018 Manitoba Film Hothouse Award. The award includes $10,000 in cash and $5,000 in production services designed to support a local director through the development stages of filmmaking that will ultimately lead to the production of one or several major film productions. The Hothouse Award is also intended to provide attention to the local directing talent that Manitoba has right here at home.


Since 2010, Manitoban visual artist Scott Fitzpatrick has produced a large body of experimental moving image work across a variety of media, with more than forty-five short films, videos, performances and installations to his credit. This collection of twenty titles provides an incomplete retrospective of this work. Adhering largely to rigorous structural forms, tempered by a punk/DIY aesthetic, Fitzpatrick’s films engage ideas regarding adaptation, appropriation, art history, colour theory, semiotics, sexuality, mathematics and more.A duality is explored as formal abstractions and assaultive flicker films engage the reptilian brain; diary films and conceptual works (by turns personal and political, snarky and sincere) invoke the analytic. Rhythm, as in the body, holds ultimate authority. Some kind of balance is proposed, though likely never reached. (Please Note: This program contains rapid movement, flashing light and sexual content.)

Reviews

He is an artist who, with apparent ease, balances and integrates the distinct aesthetic sensibilities that drive his maturing work with a freewheeling,  improvisatory, and formally inclusive attitude toward filmmaking....Scott Fitzpatrick’s films have come to carry the curses, debts, and revitalizing joys of a mature body of work, further developing and refining its individual pleasures complete with all necessary abrasions.
- Stephen Broomer, Black Flash Magazine (From 2015 an article entitled Scott Fitzpatrick: Look Back in Toner)
