  • Directors Lounge Screening: Maria Korporal - Lines in Between the Maze

    By on

    Metaphors combine beauty with a call for a better life. The Berlin artist Maria Korporal studied in the Netherlands and was working and living in Italy until 2013. Her videos, installations and performances show a strong technical affinity, while at the same time, the content of her works often criticizes the Western and economically oriented civilization. Her films are hybrid combinations of recorded video footage, animated text and digital animations from drawings and photographs. Often inspired by lyrics, they could be read as visual poetry or video aphorisms.

  • SFAI x Canyon: Scott Stark

    By on

    Filmmaker Scott Stark will show a selection of his Super-8mm and Regular 8mm films from the 1980s, screened here as newly-scanned high resolution digital versions that offer scale and detail not always seen in the celluloid originals. These early small-gauge works are experiments in the magical capabilities of the 8mm film camera, and are comprised of images and sounds derived from the commonplace: garish elements surgically extracted from the patina of popular culture. Sometimes shot in public spaces with a wry element of performance, the artifice of the films’ constructions is laid bare, the camera being a participant as much as an observer, making each film a record of its own process of production.

  • Close-Up: Larry Gottheim and Friends

    By on

    In 1967, Larry Gottheim started the Cinema Department at Binghamton University which was the first regular undergraduate program that dealt with cinema as a personal art. Considering the theme of nature in art and functions of racial, cultural and personal identity, Gottheim’s practice explores the ways in which time, movement, and becoming are bound up in a complex relation between formal cinematic patterns and pro-filmic subjects.
