Directors Lounge kindly invites:
a summer evening with
films and video
Friday, 21 September 2007
Amazing musicality and intensity in color are the
foremost impressions of Sheri Wills' films. At
the same time they speak about the beauty and
fragility of the microcosm that surrounds us, and
in our daily life, barely catches our attention.
On a closer look, one could also say, the films
of Sheri Wills evoke memories - illuminated
memories - without pointing to a specific time,
or reference in the past.
Having started off with super-8 and 16mm films,
and the endless possibilities of an optical
printer, Sheri Wills still uses photograms as
starting point of her films, however, she
nowadays also uses found footage, lens-based
images and digital technology in combination with
this "earliest and simplest photographic
technology". Her deep interest in contemporary
music has also led to congenial collaborations
with young modern composers. Viewing her films
thus becomes a synesthetic experience of color,
form, rhythm and music.
The program will consist of 16mm films and digital video projections.
For this screening Sheri Wills comes from New
York to Berlin, and will be available for Q&A.
The program is part of the summer screenings "A
Summer Evening With.." of Directors Lounge and
has been curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr
