FEBRUARY 4 and 9, 2007
San Francisco Cinematheque presents:
TIE: The International Experimental Cinema Exposition—"Celluloid Cinema"
Program Curator and TIE Festival Director Christopher May In Person

TIE, Program One:
When: Sunday, February 4 at 7:30 pm
Where: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
701 Mission Street
Admission: $8 General / $6 Members, Seniors, Students w/ID
Advance Tickets (THIS YBCA SHOW ONLY): 415-978-ARTS

TIE, Program One: An international selection of shorts in 8mm, 16mm and sumptuous 35mm. Highlights include some of the earliest examples of x-ray cinematography from the 1930s; Abu Kifan's ethereal slow motion underwater landscapes; and a rare double panel presentation of footage shot by Andy Warhol of a very noisy Velvet Underground practice that's eventually broken up by the NYPD (with Warhol himself interceding). This setup allows the projectionist to switch from one optical track to the other, making the projection as much a part of the viewing experience as the band's raw performance and Paul Morrisey's psychedelic cinematography.

TIE, Part One:
Christopher Becks: Pan of the Landscape
Gerard Holthuis: Careless Reef, Part 2: Abu Kifani
Jason Livingston: July Fix
Luther Price: Mother (revised)
Michael Robinson: The General Returns from One Place to Another
Bernhard Schreiner: Hwa-Shan District
Sami van Ingen: The Sequent of Hanna Ave.
Andy Warhol: The Velvet Underground and Nico (presented in double
Sheri Wills: Anodyne
Frank Biesendorfer: Home Body

TIE, Program Two:
When: Friday, February 9 at 7:30 pm

Information (on both shows): 415-552-1990 email suppressed see also the website of TIE:

TIE, Program Two: While the shorts in Program Two are exclusively 16mm,their aesthetic approaches are as varied as their directors' nationalities. Influential formalist pieces—A. Keewatin Dwedney's 1967 synaesthetic experiment in rapidly inter-cut footage of Warhol superstar Gerald Malanga reading and dancing—abut contemporary films that toy with and trouble figurative cinematic representation, such as Thomas Draschan and Stella Friedrichs' deconstruction of vintage Italian porn loops or Ben Russell's unsettling faux ethnography of masked subjects.
