With Filmmaker Dominic Angerame
Live Music by Kevin Barnard
László Moholy-Nagy’s Light Play
On Saturday, February 5, at 2 pm, the Exploratorium presents a special screening of two short films that examine light and shadow. They are The Soul of Things by Dominic Angerame and László Moholy-Nagy’s Light Play. This event is included in the price of admission to the Exploratorium.
Award-winning filmmaker Dominic Angerame will present The Soul of Things (2010, 15 min.), a work that uses historical San Francisco footage to explore the fluid nature of urban architecture through the saturated chemistry of black and white high-contrast film. The film will be presented in 16mm and accompanied by a live soundscape written and performed by San Francisco musician Kevin Barnard.
The program also includes Light Play: Black/White/Gray (1930, 6 min.), László Moholy-Nagy’s cinematic study of a kinetic sculpture called the Light-Space Modulator that creates luminous shadows and reflections. Don’t miss this unique event and the opportunity to meet filmmaker Dominic Angerame. The Cinema Arts Program is funded in part by the Louis Goldblatt Memorial Fund and by a grant from Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund.
