Block Cinema presents
A Cinema of Physics and Perception
This Friday, May 12th, 2006
Side/Walk/Shuttle (Ernie Gehr, 1991, U.S., 41 min., 16mm)
<---> (Michael Snow, 1968-9, Canada, 52 min., 16mm)
Abstracted from narrative purpose or emotional intention, camera motion
through space urges the viewer to meditate on the motion itself. The
more extreme it is, the more apparent it becomes that an image can
indeed affect our body.
Guest speaker: Film Professor Chuck Kleinhans, Northwestern University
WARNING: Tonight’s films contain extreme, constant motion. Those who
become dizzy or disoriented from such motion may be at risk.
