Screenings

  • Rotten Love Redux

    By on

    Rotten Love Redux tips its hat to the days of theatrical porn-going with a celebration of tactility, eroticism and utter decay. The program features 16mm porn and erotic films, each which incorporates decomposed or manipulated film stock in its depiction of erotic femme bodies. Working with both found and original footage, the filmmakers in this program employ a wide range of analog techniques—soaking, solarization, painting, scratching, burning—to alter celluloid’s chemical make-up and add a material element to the onlooker’s gaze.

  • Cinema Parenthèse #33: Jerome Hiler

    By on

    The films of Jerome Hiler (1943) blend a beauteous celebration of the sensual world with a deep sense of introspection and solitude. They are occasions for reflection and meditation, on light, landscape, time and the motions of consciousness. Hiler's encounter with the films of Nathaniel Dorsky, Marie Menken, Gregory Markopoulos and Stan Brakhage deeply affected his own artistic path.

    “This cinema 'au féminin' reminds us what the imperialist eye had repressed: different modes of editing impulses where what is seen and heard alters our perspective.” – Serge Daney, writing about DEUX FOIS in Cahiers du cinéma.
