Hi All,

Well, those of you in or near Chicago.

Sorry for the self-promotion of our next program.

Please take note of the screening we are doing this Saturday of videos by
Kyle Canterbury, a new, young experimental video artist from Michigan.

To come to the point: Kyle's work is really, really, really great.

His work has just slowly started to show (two very short pieces were in the
Wavelengths program at the Toronto Film Festival last fall) and this program
will be only the second time it has shown anywhere.

I encourage you to check out this amazing new video artist.

Details on show below.

Saturday, February 3 - 8:00 pm at Chicago Filmmakers (5243 N. Clark St.)
Re-defining Video: Work by Kyle Canterbury
Kyle Canterbury in Person!

Chicago Filmmakers is extremely pleased to present the first one-person show
(and first ever U.S. screening) of the work of Kyle Canterbury, an
extraordinarily talented new experimental video artist who lives in
Michigan. Canterbury has been making videos for only a little over a year,
and his work is already some of the most exciting and dynamic film or video
of any kind of the last decade or more. Oh, and he's only 17 years old!
Canterbury has developed a palette of techniques that emphasize the
specificity and artistic potential of the video medium unlike anyone else.
He uncovers a stunning array of textures, formal compositions, and rhythmic
patterns in the normally flat video image. Fred Camper has written: "I do
not think it is too grand to declare that Canterbury has done for video
something like what Brakhage has done for film. In his hands, after less
than a year of work, this medium, which so many have found severely limited,
has become as supple, as pliable, as sensuous, and as rhythmically various,
as film was for Brakhage." Canterbury will screen 24 short works, including
19: passage, A VIDEO, EVODI, and Fragments from a Room (all 2006). Complete
titles available on our website.
