by Farocki, Weerasethakul, Jacobs, Snow, Thornton and Gehr. The
programs kick off with La Rabbia di Pasolini, a reconstruction of
Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1963 found-footage essay film Le Rabbia (Rage),
and includes new films and videos by Phil Solomon, Peggy Ahwesh,
Lewis Klahr, Michael Robinson, Deborah Stratman, and Lynne Sachs,

will be a special tribute to the late Chick Strand, and a closing

also feature two significant and surprising rediscoveries –
Vibration (1974) by Jack Bond and the unsung Jane Arden (recently

Maddest Visionaries” and the premiere screening of the just restored
Untitled (1947), a 16mm experimental psychodrama shot and edited by
