  • AD HOC #55: Seven Films by Ed Emshwiller

    By on

    Ed Emshwiller began his career as an illustrator of science-fiction books and magazines. In this field his covers were distinct for their realist figuration and bright colours. Emshwiller had studied painting in France under the G.I. Bill, and on returning to America became involved in abstract expressionism. His work in commercial illustration maintained his training in conventional realism, placing vivid, photo-realistic figures into fantastical realms and situations, even as he was otherwise drawn to the possibilities for form to transcend subject.

  • AD HOC #54: Philip Hoffman: Collaborations & Meditations (1995-2024)

    By on

    "The short films in this program reflect a mix of formal experiments and collaborations that often feed into and fuel some of my longer poetic narratives, essay and autobiographical films, spanning my 45 year practice. Formally, the first half of the program are mid-career works which experiment with techniques of fragmentation through shooting, editing optical printing and through photo-chemical processes.

  • Spaghetti Style

    By on

    The term 'spaghetti style' refers to pouring and agitating film in a developing tank, much like stirring spaghetti. Some view this as a cheap, non-standard approach that deviates from regulated processes. However, for those who venture outside institutional norms and believe in the accidental beauty that emerges from deficiencies and lacks, it represents a precious alternative method. Inside the darkness, films overlap, brush each other, and leave their traces. When the lid of the tank and the door open, the light enters the darkroom.

    M. Woods’ Commodity Trading: Dies Irae is a surrealist nightmare wrapped in a documentary chronicling the void that emerged with the election of Donald Trump.
