Silence and Sanctuaries

November 29, 2017
7:00 pm
Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive

As part of our Canyon Cinema 50 film series, we have Nathaniel Dorsky presenting four short films Nathaniel Dorsky served on Canyon's board several times, most recently for twelve years, until Canyon was restructured as a nonprofit in 2013. He has been making films since 1963; his move to San Francisco in 1971 figures in one. Most are 16mm, silent, and projected at 18 frames per second. With his new films, he has begun to shift away from his unique polyvalent editing to explore long sequences of light on plants, or, as he wrote in relation to Elohim, "the energy of light as creation." His two new films are screened with two hand-painted films by Stan Brakhage, making for a silent evening, or, as Dorsky described Abaton, "a sanctuary for dreaming and healing."
