DIM Cinema pays tribute to Peter Hutton, the influential American filmmaker and educator who died last June. Cahiers du cinéma described his body of work as radical and singular: “A sort of primitive documentary, silent, which celebrates the beauty of the world without forgetting to observe people, the conditions they live and work under.”

Program One: Near
- Boston Fire | 1979. 8 min.
- New York Near Sleep for Saskia | 1972. 10 min.
- New York Portrait, Chapter II | 1979. 16 min.
- New York Portrait, Chapter III | 1981. 16 min.
- Landscape (for Manon) | 1987. 12 min.

Screening format: 16mm, silent.

“Hutton's black-and-white haikus are an exquisite distillation of the cinematic eye. The limitations imposed — no colour, no sound, no movement (except from a vehicle not directly propelled by the filmmaker), no direct cuts since the images are born and die in black — ironically entail an ultimate freedom of the imagination ... If pleasure can disturb, Hutton’s ploys emerge in full focus. These materializing then evaporating images don’t ignite, but conjure strains of fleeting panoramas of detached bemusement. More than mere photography, Hutton’s contained-with-in-the-frame juxtapositions are filmic explorations of the benign and the tragic” (Warren Sonbert)
