Canyon Luminaries Program 2: Through the Looking Glass

Canyon Luminaries Program 2: Through the Looking Glass

Curator and film scholar Irina Leimbacher will be in attendance

Nathaniel Dorsky once said that his films were “of the world as it comes through the hole of his Bolex camera.” The three filmmakers in this program use the Bolex and 16mm film as their “looking” glass. Guy Sherwin’s 100-foot-roll studies reveal the power of his spring-wind camera to philosophically contemplate and comment on light, temporality, and life. In 19 Scenes Relating to a Trip to Japan, Konrad Steiner places moving images next to each other to reflect on the dynamism and transience of relation and the force of the cinematic frame. Finally, Nathaniel Dorsky’s Sarabande is a continuous, moving experience of discovery of the mysterious world that we see—but usually miss—every day.
