SFAI FILM SALON
Wednesday, February 13
Studio 8, 800 Chestnut Street
ANTICIPATION OF THE NIGHT
Moving on the edges of night, Michelangelo Antonioni¹s second film NETTEZZA
URBANA, a visual essay on Roman street sweepers, captures a city¹s life
pulse within an enveloping darkness of dusk and lightening of dawn. Delving
into the inner explorations of self, Stan Brakhage¹s THE ANTICIPATION OF THE
NIGHT gives impressionistic and poetic form to the discoveries, beauties and
anxieties of life. The film marks a crucial turning point in Brakhage¹s
work, in which the immediacies of encounter and the primacy of sight guide
the visioning of experience.
