Film Classics in 16mm! Canyon Cinema 50 Film Tour
United States | 1973-2017 | various directors
The second of four programs celebrating the 50th anniversary of Canyon Cinema, a longtime San Francisco-based distributor of truly independent, often experimental short works by major American filmmakers. This installment features recent films by Saul Levine, Charlotte Pryce, and Christopher Harris; rarely screened works by Standish Lawder and Jean Sousa; sublime, acutely perceived portraits of cities, seas, skies, and landscapes by Peter Hutton, Julie Murray, Gary Beydler, Robert Fulton, and Emily Richardson; Betzy Bromberg’s audacious and energetic feminist punk city symphony Ciao Bella…; Scott Stark’s Degrees of Limitation, a short, humorous, structuralist gem; and Greta Snider’s Portland, a 1996 travelogue and playful Rashomon-like inquiry into the nature of truth. 14 films in all, 4 in new prints. Complete film titles at canyoncinema50.org/tour/. Total 79 min.
