Magic Lantern Presents “The Silent Show”
Wednesday the 19th of April at 9:30
at the Cable Car Cinema (204 South Main Street, Providence, RI)

FILMMAKER DAVID GATTEN IN PERSON! At long long last, Magic Lantern
gives you a reason to take those foam earplugs out and to turn your
noise-cancelling headphones off - there won't be any crying babies or
balding men with thick accents swearing into cell phones, and there
certainly won't be any early-80s New Wave bass shaking the ceiling fan
above your head. After all, this is the Silent Show, and Magic Lantern
is quietly kicking out the jams for a night of text-as-image
meditation-revelation. Our good friend David Gatten will be here (of
"The Water and Sky Show" fame, and also ArtForum, the Whitney Biennial,
and more) to project and whisper in your collective ear about his most
recent series of films - Parts I-IV of "Secret History of the Dividing
Line, A True Account in Nine Parts." These are sound-less films about
letters, lovers, books, ghosts, and the 18th century Byrd family of
Virginia, and gathered together they present an entirely new vision of
cinema's glorious past, present, and future...

Featuring: Secret History of the Dividing Line (20:00, 16mm,
1996-2002), The Great Art of Knowing (37:00, 16mm, 2004), Moxon's
Mechanick Exercises, or, The Doctrine of Handy-Works Applied to the Art
of Printing (26:00, 16mm, 1999), The Enjoyment of Reading, Lost & Found
(16:00, 16mm, 2001)
TRT 99:00
