  S:TREAM:S:S:ECTION:S:ECTION:S:S:ECTIONED. 1968-70, 41 minutes, 16mm,
  color. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with support from the
  National Film Preservation Foundation. "A conceptual lap dissolve from
  'water currents' to 'film strip currents'/Dedicated to my son
  Christopher." -P.S. "Yes, S:S:S:S:S:S is beautiful. The successive
  scratchings of the stream-image film is very powerful vandalism. The
  film is a very complete organism with all the possible levels really
  recognized." -Michael Snow. "A scratch is generally considered a
  negative factor, which distracts from and eliminates the illusion by
  cutting away at the emulsion base of the film itself. But in
  S:S:S:S:S:S, Sharits makes a scratch a positive factor in its additive
  and subtractive relationship to the recorded film illusion. And, at the
  same time, he uses the scratch to emphasize the linearity of the film
  material and its passage through the projector.." -Regina Cornwell,
  ARTFORUM. N:O:T:H:I:N:G . 1968, 36 minutes, 16mm. Preserved by Anthology
  Film Archives with support from the National Film Preservation
  Foundation. Based in part on the Tibetan Mandala of the Five Dhyani
  Buddhas/a journey toward the center of pure consciousness (Dharma-Dhatu
  Wisdom)/space and motion generated rather than illustrated/time-color. .
  "In essence there are only three flicker films of importance, ARNULF
  RAINER, THE FLICKER, and N:O:T:H:I:N:G… In terms of the subject we have
  discussed here, it is Sharits's N:O:T:H:I:N:G that opens the field for
  the structural film with a flicker base." -P. Adams Sitney.

  THE TIN WOODMAN'S DREAM (1967, 15 minutes, 35mm). "My cinematic excreta
  is of four varieties: - batiked animations made directly on film between
  1939 and 1946; optically printed non-objective studies composed around
  1950; semi-realistic animated collages made as part of my alchemical
  labors of 1957 to 1962; and chronologically super-imposed photographs of
  actualities formed since the latter year. All these works have been
  organized in specific patterns derived from the interlocking beats of
  the respiration, the heart and the EEG Alpha component and should be
  observed together in order, or not at all, for they are valuable works,
  works that will forever abide - they made me gray." -Harry Smith. To

  music by the eyeful presents a night of films by David Michalak and
  stories narrated by Dean Santomieri, with live music by Dean and
  violinist Angela Hsu. Special guest Bob Marsh will read the DADA poem
  "Seahorses and Flying Fish" by Hugo Ball with Man Ray's Return to Reason
  projected. --About the Artists -- David Michalak is celebrating over 35
  years of independent filmmaking as well as performing in his bands REEL
  CHANGE, Ghost in the House and the duo, Doctor Bob. This performance
  will feature The Spoken Word and other films that borrow their dialogue
  from phone messages, "How To", Instructional or other spoken word
  recordings. As Robert Taylor (Tribune) writes: "The Spoken Word" is an
  ingenious and often hilarious 22 minute satire of one family's addiction
  to the platitudes of canned advice. Mom is lip-synching ideas from "How
  To Give A Perfect Dinner Party." Dad is going through the agony of "How
  To Quit Smoking Without Will Power" while Bobby is in his room buried
  under punk rock albums, taping a confession from "The Drug Scene and
  Youth." In 20 years we may look back at "Shirley MacLaine's Inner
  Workout" with similar amusement." -- Dean
  Santomieri is a writer, musician and video-maker. His performances
  usually include narration, electro-acoustic music, and video. His video
  Twin, a send up of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, was screened in festivals
  around the world. Angela Hsu is an orchestral, chamber and freelance
  musician, who is now involved in avant-garde, experimental and
  improvisatory musics. Dean Santomieri will present stories and videos
  based on his dreams, with music by Dean and violinist Angela Hsu. -- Bob Marsh is a well seasoned
  improviser whose work has involved shaping sounds words images ideas. He
  currently leads or directs String Theory, a string ensemble focusing on
  textures and microtonics; the Che Guevarra Memorial Marching (and
  Stationary) Accordion Band, structured and free improv for six to
  fifteen accordions; Robot Martians, electronics and processed voice; the
  Out of the Blue Chamber Ensemble, a mixture of reeds and strings; Opera
  Viva, voiced physical theater; the Quintessentials, a quintet
  specializing in interpreting graphic compositions based on alterations
  to the Michelin Road Guide to France; and the Illuminated Orchestra,
  structured improves for large ensemble. -- About Music by the Eyeful
  ( This is the fourth in a
  spontaneous series of concerts featuring inventions in visual audio ,
  exploring the moving boundaries between music, film, optics, graphics,
  loops and reels, guest curated by Suki O'Kane, musician and curator of
  The Illuminated Corridor. -- About the Corridor --
  ( The Illuminated Corridor is a next step in
  outdoor cinema: a nomadic public art installation that creates
  site-specific illumination of public space, drawing on local traditions
  of film and live music. Launched in the Summer of 2005 by a
  collaboration of over 60 Bay Area filmmakers, media artists, sound
  artists and musicians, the Illuminated Corridor catalyzes new work,
  showcases diverse collaborations between performative projectionists and
  performing artists, and covers a vast territory of film and music

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
6:00, 32 Second Avenue (at Second Street)

  Dir: Harry Smith. "NO. 12 can be seen as one moment - certainly the most
  elaborately crafted moment - of the single alchemical film which is
  Harry Smith's life work. In its seriousness, its austerity, it is one of
  the strangest and most fascinating landmarks in the history of cinema.
  "Its elaborately constructed soundtrack in which the sounds of various
  figures are systematically displaced onto other images reflects Smith's
  abiding concern with auditory effects." -P. Adams Sitney.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
7:30, 32 Second Avenue (at Second Street)

  Dir: Jack Smith. Jack Smith "graced the anarchic liberation of new
  American cinema with a graphic and rhythmic power worthy of the best of
  formal cinema. He has attained for the first time in motion pictures a
  high level of art which is absolutely lacking in decorum; and a
  treatment of sex which makes us aware of the restraint of all previous
  filmmakers." -FILM CULTURE. . Also showing: Jack Smith. SCOTCH TAPE.
  1962, 3 minutes, 16mm, color, sound. Junkyard musical.

  Homesborrows its name from the ever-popular U.S. magazine dedicated to
  consumer-friendly transformation of domestic space. A titular
  connection, granted, but the program's invitation to read landscape is
  more than a nominal gesture. Consider the physicality of the stones
  beside you and the screen before you. Regarding our relationship to the
  world we inhabit: do landscapes figure our movement? Are we contained by
  institutional architecture? We should not be surprised that we still –
  tired of body discourse, tongues dragging on the ground, stretch it out
  and dance! or watch until moved – that we still struggle to speak lived

  Dir: Michael Snow. "WAVELENGTH is without precedent in the purity of its
  confrontation with the essence of cinema: the relationships between
  illusion and fact, space and time, subject and object. It is the first
  post-Warhol, post-Minimal movie; one of the few films to engage those
  higher conceptual orders which occupy modern painting and sculpture. It
  has rightly been described as a 'triumph of contemplative cinema.'"

San Francisco, California: Studio 27
9 p.m., 689 Bryant Street (at 5th Street)

  Studio 27 presents Danger Zone, a program of twelve short experimental
  films and videos that address boundaries of conformity or danger in both
  public and personal spaces. The screening includes works made using a
  variety of imaging techniques, from abstract pieces created with high
  voltage electricity or digital processes to found footage films. Danger
  Zone provides a night of cinema diversity, ranging from documentary to
  fiction, and from the meditative to the frenetic.The filmmaker Roger
  Deutsch will be present. Curated by Tomonari Nishikawa.Films
  screened:Some Call It Home by Roger Deutsch, 2006, 5 mins., video, USA.
  A delicate framing of the view of a residential house from a short
  distance creates an exquisite space-time that holds a sense of the past
  and present of the site, and expresses Deutsch's special bond to the
  scene. Santa Fe de Bagota, Dia De La Independencia by Juan Recaman,
  2001, 5 mins., video, Columbia/USA. Recaman mixes day and night footage
  of the Independence Day celebration in Columbia, in both color and black
  and white, to reveal the hidden danger in daily life.Two Thousand Walls
  by Peter Snowdon, 2006, 6 mins., video, Belgium. Beautiful,
  impressionist painting-like visuals with the voices of a family
  conversation, and a baby's shout in the distance. Snowdon changes the
  brightness of the background color, and shows worry and hope in the
  future of the family.Viseric Fulcrum by Lori Hepner, 2005, 2 mins.,
  video, USA. The slight difference between two oval images, or a third
  image that viewers might see by crossing their eyes, shows Hepner's
  interest in creating a complex sense of dimension on the screen.It Could
  Happen To You by Elizabeth Henry, 2004, 8 mins., video, USA.Henry
  discloses the mystery of the human mind by juxtaposing found footage of
  talking heads expressing love and separation, close observations of
  human activity, a science lab, and the beauty of the universe. The Train
  That (Never) Left by Sturla Brandth Grovlen, 2006, 6 mins., video,
  Norway. Using montage technique with stunning cinematography, and
  drawing attention to closed spaces built up by the walls and the edges
  of the screen, Grovlen produces a uniquely cinematic time and space.
  Being There by Anders Weberg & Robert Willim, 2006, 6 mins., video,
  Sweeden. Six different cities are combined into a virtual urban
  landscape using complex editing of video images and computer generated
  sounds. This piece suggests the cyber-network systems that connect
  cities.Count Backwards From Five by Tony Gault, 2007, 8 mins., video,
  USA. Through organic, dream-like visuals, and a phone conversation,
  Gault reveals the close relationships between friends and families, the
  enjoyment of life, and the sadness of approaching death.Other Turbans by
  Darrin Martin, 2007, 12 mins., video, USA. Other Turbans is a reflection
  on the fear and difficulty that the filmmaker experienced during the
  recovery process of his head operation and complications that he might
  continue to have in the future.Silent Screen by Sang Nam, 2004, 4 mins.,
  video, USA. Two different textures divided by edges within the same
  screen frame - one has more distinguished patterns, and the other a
  blurred reflection. Nam creates a theatrical space within the screen,
  with motion in natural flow, and sudden change.El Hijo Y El Libro (The
  Boy and the Book) by Rafael, 2004, 6 mins., Spain. Playing with the
  shooting session and the editing process, black and red images with
  sound effects produce nightmare-like confusions, ceasing the Kid's
  perspective, and revealing the structure of grown-ups.Energie! by
  Thorsten Fleisch, 2007, 5 mins., Germany. Fleisch takes the viewer on an
  optic journey through a flickering space where the pleasure of 2D/3D
  illusions reveal the complexity of retina perception and its connection
  to the nervous system.Free Admission!

San Francisco, California: New Langton Arts
4pm-10-m, 1246 Folsom Street

  New Langton Arts and San Francisco Cinematheque present Terra Incognita
  III, six hours of shorts by local and international artists exploring
  the multiple facets of landscape, including work by Alfonso Alvarez,
  Bill Baldewicz, Freda Banks, David Borengasser, Brook Hinton, Peter
  Hutton, Jun Jalbuena, Joshua Kanies, Chris Kennedy, Peter Max Lawrence,
  Beca Lafore, Janis Crystal Lipzin, Katherin McInnis, Tomonari Nishikawa,
  Vanessa O'Neill, Ken Paul Rosenthal, Laura Rodriquez, Margaret Schedel,
  Vanessa Woods, Won-Tae Seo, Charles Woodman, and David Yun. PROGRAM:
  4:00 - 6:30pm Terra Incognita III, curated by San Francisco Cinematheque
  6:30 - 7:00pm Peter Hutton (New York Portrait, and Part III, In Titan's
  Goblet) 7:30 - 10:00pm Terra Incognita III, curated by San Francisco
  Cinematheque TERRA INCOGNITA III Katherin McInnis landscapes in
  alphabetical order (2003, 1 minute) McInnis' film is made with stills
  from the Prelinger Archives films after searching the keyword
  "landscape" (in alphabetical order by film title). The soundtrack is
  composed from the digital image files processed as sound files. Alfonso
  Alvarez Down On The Farm (2003, 6:30 minutes) Shot at the Film Farm, a
  hand processing film workshop amid the rolling flatlands west of
  Toronto, Canada, Down on the Farm depicts a local farmer harvesting hay
  from dawn to dusk. Joshua Kanies Chasm (2007, 8 minutes) In Chasm,
  Kanies takes a discerning look at the residual effects of human
  consumption. As an avid nature enthusiast and mountain climber, Kanies'
  current motion picture work focuses on using personal and poetic
  documentary as a tool for exploration, environmental education, and
  conservation. David Borengasser and Freda Banks Faces on Mars (2007, 7
  minutes) Using extreme close ups and enlarged film grain, Faces on Mars
  is a psychological narrative from the points of view of a woman driver
  and her male passenger. The physical distance between them reflects an
  emotional distance, with landscapes and a radio broadcast filling the
  gap as bold saturated colors shift mood and time. David Yun A Taste of
  Home (2007, 7:29 minutes) A Taste of Home is an excavation of a suburban
  landscape. Thematically, Yun's work often explores the feelings of
  isolation that plague modern society and the misunderstandings that
  arise from our lack of personal, familial, and cross-cultural
  communication. Janis Crystal Lipzin Cracks Between the Stones (2004, 11
  minutes) Cracks Between the Stones asks viewers to reconsider the expert
  speculation and interpretation of the architectural remains of earlier
  cultures. The visuals were composed from many hours of footage shot over
  a 10-year period at remote Amer-Indian sites, in the European Arctic
  area, Stonehenge (Britain), and contemporary North American urban sites.
  Bill Baldewicz West Wind Quartet (2007, 8 minutes) Utilizing primarily
  regular 8mm unslit film to create a four screen affect, the imagery of
  West Wind Quartet traces atmospheric progress along the California
  coast, through San Francisco, the East Bay and across states to Nevada
  and the Four Corners. Laura Rodriquez Flower Fall (2007, 4:30 minutes) A
  hand-processed Ektachrome single-frame animation, Flower Fall is a
  meditation on vibration and color, inspired by the chakra system. From
  self-love sing-a-longs to empowering 'queer girl magic movies' to
  luminous meditations on nature, Rodriguez's films and videos are about
  transformation and healing. Charles Woodman and Margaret Schedel Horse
  Farm Mixer (2006, 8minutes) Slow, sensual and languorous, Horse Farm
  Mixer is a serial scan of a horse farm. Vanessa O'Neill August (2007
  4:30 minutes) Hand-processed and hand-worked, August explores how the
  end of a season evokes transient imprints and reverberations of memory.
  Passing (2007, 1:20 minutes) Passing is a short film that explores the
  idea of passing (passing time, passing histories, and passing away). To
  create the film, self-portraits of the filmmaker taken in an abandoned
  home were used as a stage to re-inhabit and reinvent through single
  frame animation. Mark making, collage and sound engender a new history
  in the spaces of a vanishing home. Vanessa Woods What the Water Saw
  (2006, 2:34 minutes) What the Water Saw explores a mystery at the depths
  of the sea. The film is structured to mimic the ocean's moods, creating
  a varied psychological space for the viewer. Equally important, the
  visual construction of the film moves between form and formlessness.
  What the Water Saw combines negative and positive black and white
  footage with densely painted 35mm film. Ken Paul Rosenthal Arcs of
  Texture (2006, 6 minutes) Rosenthal's films are poetic meditations on
  urban space, the natural world, and human gesture, and often employ
  hand-processing, bacterial manipulations, re-photography and multiple
  projection set-ups. In Arcs of Texture, the face of the city is rendered
  as a light-infused intersection of people, glass, and concrete. Chris
  Kennedy The Acrobat (2007, 16 minutes) A consideration of the
  relationship between gravity and politics--the necessity of rising up,
  but also, perhaps, the significance of allowing oneself to fall. Brook
  Hinton A Trip Down Third Street Before the Unknown: Scenic Highlights
  from the SFMuni T-Line (2007, 8 minutes) Hinton's film is a silent
  meditation on public space in contemporary life based on San Francisco
  Muni's new and controversial "T-Line". Hinton's work addresses the
  emotional reality of existence in our speed of light cacophony, seeking
  to counter and subvert the status quo on behalf of forgotten corners of
  private and cultural life. Won-Tae Seo Tower Crane (2006, 8 minutes)
  Basing the film's structure on the direction and rhythm of movement of a
  tower crane, Seo depicts the nature of cinematic space, representing
  three-dimensionality on a two-dimensional screen. Peter Max Lawrence de
  Young (2007, 8 minutes) De Young is an architectural and textural tour
  of the de Young Museum and grounds in San Francisco. Tomonari Nishikawa
  Sketch Film #3 (2006, 3 minutes) Inspired by the idea of using a super 8
  camera as one would a sketchbook, Nishikawa takes single-frame shots,
  edits in camera, and processes the film by hand. In Sketch Film #3,
  Nishikawa captured abstracted shapes and movements, and manipulated the
  imagery to create a sense of depth. Jun Jalbuena, in collaboration with
  Beca Lafore Walking Through The Landscape of Other People's Eyes (2007,
  30 - 60 minutes) audio/live performance Jalbuena and Lafore question and
  explore the functional dynamic of a landscape in art, defining a
  landscape as material to walk through and inhabit. Utilizing twenty
  hours of interviews comprised of activists in San Francisco discussing
  the complexities and problems of group dynamics, the filmmakers present
  an arrangement of recordings as a conversation between two people. Peter
  Hutton New York Portrait, Part III (1990, 15 minutes) "New York
  Portrait, Part III takes on a unique tone in relation to Hutton's
  ongoing exploration of rural landscape. The high angle of observation,
  frequent in Hutton's previous New York films here seems to carry a sense
  of withdrawal, a distance matched by compassion..." - Tom Gunning, Art
  History Professor University of Chicago In Titan's Goblet (1991, 10
  minutes) This film refers to a landscape painting by Thomas Cole circa
  1833. It is intended as an homage to Cole, who is regarded as the father
  of the Hudson River School of painting.
