Film Classics in 16mm! 50th Anniversary!
Canada, United States | 1967 | Michael Snow
Michael Snow’s rigorous study of space and time is one of the most famous, revered, and influential experimental films ever made—a slow, 45-minute zoom through a room. Yet this single shot encompasses four human events (including a death) and is augmented by dialogue, music, and sound effects. With Hollis Frampton. Preceded at 5:00 by the rare sound version of Stan Brakhage’s Scenes from Under Childhood Part 1 (USA, 1967), which Brakhage called “a visualization of the inner world of foetal beginnings, the infant, the baby, the child” and “a tone poem for the eye—very inspired by the music of Oliver Messiaen.” Total 70 min.
Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
