What is it they say? Autumn means turning a new leaf, a time to move on.
Gazing back and looking forward, it strikes me that right now is a fine
occasion to retire some of my more recent pieces. But before shelving these
little films, it’d be a shame not to give you one last opportunity to miss
them. Today’s show features two recent-ish Super 8 pieces for solo projector
“contracted cinema” performance. These intimate movies must be performed
live in order to be seen. My projector, my films, me and you. That’s all we
*JACKA SPADES *(2009, 34 minutes, Super 8)
Steve Dalachinsky, with the aid of Yuko Otomo and cinematographer Andrew
Lampert, is offered the chance to direct his dream film. This is not that,
but rather the result of what they shot that day presented in real time as
they filmed it. In the end, this is always what the film was supposed to be;
what Steve wanted is another story heard on the soundtrack of the images
“I think I always wanted to be the actor, not the director.” – Steve
Dalachinsky from the soundtrack.
*AM I FROM BROOKLYN?* (2010, 24 minutes, Super 8).
A tour-guided journey through a few Brooklyn neighborhoods known and unknown
to the filmmaker. First performed at The Poetry Project on April 23, 2010.
PLUS…other surprise films!
AND…Steve Dalachinsky and Yuko Otomo will each read a couple poems!
BUT WAIT… a mindboggling short film from the *SEE *series by Eugene Castle!
DON’T FORGET...there will be door prizes!
