Jennifer Nightingale’s films broadly fall into two categories of ‘pinhole films’ and ‘knitting films’. The pinhole films that she has selected to show here include a new two-screen configuration of West Window, East Window. Other films include pieces from her Cornish Knitting Pattern series, which document the coastal locations where the knitting patterns derive from. The patterns themselves dictate editing decisions.
Considered of one of our greatest living avant-garde masters, we are very fortunate to host Larry Gottheim in person as part of his tour of Europe which includes screenings in London, Vienna, Budapest, Stockholm, Hamburg, Spain, among others. The program will present a selection of earlier films as well as his new, recently completed, 42 minute work Chants and Dances for Hand (1991-2016)
LaborBerlin is proud to host Steve Polta, who will join us in person to present a screening of his films on Super 8 and 16mm.
“Bay area artist Steve Polta, who has been producing a body of films, mostly on Super 8, over the past two decades that are as exquisitely nuanced as they are rarely seen. Each film presents a narrow window onto the ordinary world, prodded by subtle observation until it yields images of ethereal beauty.” (Rick Bahto: Echo Park Film Center)
