A night of moving images in a variety of formats - 16mm, super 8mm, and digital video.
Concrete - 16mm, color, optical sound. 8min; Rebecca Reynolds
Channeling Klossowski and Bataille, here there are no boundaries between the past and present, the sacred and erotic, and the real and imagined. In-camera effects, projections, and optical printing are used to create a layering of images that systematically reworks narrative fragments into a final, simplified conclusion.
One Storey - DV 13 minutes; A. Moon
A meditation on the effects of displacement and racial difference upon intimate relations. The protagonist moves from city to city, seemingly in an attempt to find the space wherein she might viably act as both subject and object of desire, while narrating her inner thoughts to an unnamed acquaintance.
Blue Burlesque, 6 min, super 8 with sound; Pat Doyen
Mesiji, 3 min, digital video, sound; Pat Doyen
Paper test no. 1, 3 min, 16mm, silent; Pat Doyen
Journal of Drifting Hours - 6min, silent, Super 8mm-Chris H Lynn
Drifting moments, lyrical passages, memory impulses, landscape studies and visual notations captured and edited in camera on super 8 film.

Live 16mm films presented by Patrick Cain
Rebecca Reynolds uses cinematic "parlor tricks" to construct and pervert systems of logic with surreal and provocative imagery. Ideas are played out through uncanny juxtapositions within a divided frame, created DIY-style with her beloved Bolex and matte box.
