Working from different aesthetic and conceptual backgrounds, the films of these three artists share an ethos of handmade, personal cinema. All films will be screened from actual 16mm and Super 8mm film on actual film projectors!!!
Angelina Krahn utilizes a wide palette of alternative techniques in her films, perhaps most poignantly in Stigmata Sampler, in which she sewed into the surface of the film to cover up and obscure images of her own body.
Karen Johannesen’s masterful editing and single-framing techniques serve to embody studies into quantum mechanics, bringing to vision in delicate landscapes a world “teeming with billions of unrealized possibilities”.
Rick Bahto’s in-camera edited works use the people and places of his everyday life as the basis of studies in movement, rhythm and duration, creating a tension between pre-determined structures and a freedom of improvisation.
This is the first time any of these films have been seen in Arizona.
