After…After…(Access)

So Is This

Michael Snow

Investigate film as language, via the language of film reduced to the basic units of film and language. A film as text in which each frame is a single word.

Urban Peasants

Ken Jacobs

Do almost nothing: re-present (unaltered and arranged by chance) silent family home movies handed down to Flo, (Ken’s wife) and follow them with a “teach yourself Yiddish” cassette tape.

Hotel Diaries 1-8

John Smith

These simple, one-take videos, relate personal experiences to the current conflicts in the Middle East via the most basic of means (a hotel room, a camcorder, John’s personal thoughts, concerns and convictions).

Film Programme: The Last Clean Shirt

Alfred Leslie

A parody of a (Manhattan) road movie and meditation on bifurcation, in paths traveled between the seen and the heard; a road trip played over and over from different perspectives.

Film Programme: Zorns Lemma

Hollis Frampton

One of the great experimental films. A 60 minute, three part riddle that maybe approximates our intellectual development by moving from imageless words to the recognition of silent images and the learning of simple tasks and finally a serenity and acceptance of death.

Film Programme: Bleu Shut

A kind of audience activating, structured film guessing game in the manipulation of time, sound and image. “At 11:15, weiners. At 21:05, pornography. At 23:30, a duet. Watch the Clock.”

Tony Conrad: The Flicker

Tony Conrad

One of the most startling cinematic debuts on record, The Flicker is more a hallucination than a film, an out of body experience and riotous celebration of visual harmonics frequencies. An experiment in perception, come with your mind and eyes open.
