SFAI Film Salon
Quick Billy, Bruce Baillie
Monday, February 4, 7:30pm
Studio 8, 800 Chestnut Street, San Francisco
Free and open to the public.
Narcotic and nocturnal, QUICK BILLY traces Baillie's elliptical thought
patterns as he struggles through a long hallucinatory illness. Meditations
from the Tibetan Book of the Dead are paired with considerations of the
American landscape in the dense superimpositions that propel this film
forward. For Baillie, it's 'A Horse Opera in Four Reels', a claim that
becomes fully realized in the gunslinging climax which tumbles us from
mediatation into a true Bardo Follies. Hard to believe this touchstone of
the American avant-garde was completed as a MFA requirement here at SFAI. We
will be also showing a selection of Baillie's camera rolls which he used as
source material for his optical printing.
The SFAI Film Salon is a weekly film screening program, organized by film
students for the entire SFAI community.
Supported by the SFAI Student Union and Legion Of Graduate Students.
