SURVIVA, directed by Ariel Dougherty and Carol Clement, a Women’s Film Preservation Fund (WFPF) preservation premiere, and Lisa Crafts' GLASS GARDENS, an earlier WFPF preservation, view the theme of art making and survival from different perspectives: SURVIVA, on a pragmatic level focusing on the day to day concerns of a group of women artists and GLASS GARDENS, showing the power of a woman’s artistic drive, even in the worst of times. In both films animation figures prominently.
In the structuralist films in this session, German Werner Nekes and American Paul Sharits each start out from a single resource: panoramic views of the horizon and the double screening of pure colours. This allows them to musically explore the variations of light and colour, expanding the screen and broadening our perception.
This is the third in a series of monthly screenings comprising a complete retrospective of the work of Dominic Angerame. Since 1968 Angerame has produced more than 30 films on 16mm and several newer works in digital format. Some of these films have never had a public screening. Many of Angerame’s films show San Francisco, the city he has lived and worked in since 1979, and its varying cityscape as it looks and changes over time. He has also created short comedies, short-form documentaries and many diary films.

A visual wash of street grids, land masses, water bodies, and curiosities from built and natural environments. Saturated colors. The subtlest of tints. Unreal spaces for formerly-real sounds. Glitches in crowdsourced data. Jittery zooms and pans. Orphaned information and free-floating symbology.
