Also, Auguste Varkalis, a Lithuanian painter who used to be artist in
residence at Anthology, did some fantastic scratch films. I noticed one is
now available for rent through the Co-op:

Auguste Varkalis
Meditation N. O. (2000) 16mm, black and white, silent, 6 min
Genre: Experimental
Keywords: Found Footage
Scratch and painting on film, mostly on found footage. Very light and fast,
kind of Zen of cinema.
Rental: $20.00

Subject: Scratching on film

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know if Amy Granat's films are available for rental? And can
anyone recommend good examples of scratching on film? I'd like to show some
"scratch films" to an into 16mm film class this fall. I have David Gatten's
What the Water Said in mind, and some Norman McLaren. Of course I'd like to
show a Brakhage - is there an especially good one that anyone would like to
recommend? I know about Taka Iimura's work, which I'm considering, and
Sharits' Stream Sectioned, etc. I'd really be interested in recent work -
any recommendations, on or off list, are greatly appreciated.
