SFAI Film Salon: Imprints in Super 8

These filmmakers works in Super 8 point to the mediumšs allowance for an
immediacy of expression, ease of movement and unique textural qualities, in
engagments with intimate and visceral inspirations. Saul Levinešs Light
Lick: Get it While You Can was made frame by frame, augmenting glimpses of
the everyday with the gestures, rhythms and pulses of pure light. Storm de
Hirschšs Recurring Dream excites a sensory engagement with ritual and the
transcendent, while Stan Brakhagešs luminous Song 14 has growing molds,
paints and crystals literally imprinting themselves onto the fi lm. Emily
Died is a part of Anne Charlotte Robertsonšs continuing fi lm diary, a
project in which she exposes and confronts her personal struggles and lifešs
losses with the power of filmic discovery and raw expression. Willie
Varelašs personal cinema confronts the hovering presence of mortality in
Juntos en la Vida, Unidos en la Muerte (ŗTogether in Life, United in
Death˛). Program to include: Light Lick: Get it While You Can, Saul Levine,
2000, 10 min., Recurring Dream, Storm de Hirsch, 1965, 3 min. Juntos en la
