The snowman (Phil Solomon, 1995)El cielo en la Tierra (Heaven on Earth) is an eleven-programme retrospective of four American filmmakers whose work deals with 'other dimensions' through their cinematic forms: Zoe Beloff, Nathaniel Dorsky, Phil Solomon and Robert Beavers. Curated by Garbiñe Ortega and presented as a collaboration between La Casa Encendida (Madrid) and (S8) Mostra de Cinema Periférico (A Coruña), the retrospective will dedicate several programmes to each filmmaker, trying to offer a panoramic view of the main themes covered in their careers. Zoe Beloff (June 6-10, Madrid) and Nathaniel Dorsky (May 31st and June 1st, Madrid) will be present in several of the screenings for Q&A, and Beloff will do a 3D performance and a workshop on video performances and installations.
