A series of films exploring relations of text and found image: how text turns the image, spins it, to acknowledge the alphabet as power, accompaniment and meaning. Originating from Child’s explorations as a published poet and her friendships in the field..."We perceive that a set of concerns builds up, with artful indirectness: women’s power; the gestures of gender; manipulation of a spectator’s sensibility through the medium of film; large-scale political implications of small moments." (Karen Schiff)

Starting point for this work was a performance text for five performers. I decided that the original text dialogue should be recorded and that I would then translate the text associatively into visual imagery. Parallel to this, the composer created a soundtrack from collected material related to the means inherent in the text. There are three levels in this work: the spoken text, the sound composition and the visual imagery, which were then synchronised together.. The original version is conceived as an installation for 5 synchronized projections on 5 large screens set in a semi-circle in front of the viewers. The single-screen version was subsequently produced from that material. - Robert Darroll Soundtrack by Sean Reed with a grant from the ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany..

Includes two films: Continuum and Deconstruction Sight.. "This is history without narrative, an abstract summation of what happens when human beings move stuff around and make something of it, grow tired of what they've made and demolish it using other things they've made, and then start all over again. What we build, what we destroy, what we find useful to do both, how we let our interaction with them describe what we call human - these are some of the ideas Angerame's Deconstruction Sight suggests.". . From an essay by Barbara Jaspersen Voorhees, 1990. . "...the images of Continuum certainly haunt me: there was the softest continual casualness of editing (beseeming "casualness", I should say; for I certainly DO know how difficult this is to accomplish), and a steadiness-of rhythm, always moving/moving but never as anything ominous to me, or inexorable something more like very heavy water lapping. Then the blacks and whites, evolving from some gray "cloud" into the stark sharp glistens of "stars" in the deep black of "tar" for the "tar" too seemed more night that what you'd photographed. It was amazing to me how little evidence there was in the film of the Time in which it was made, or even the location: I found myself tending to forget that these were City-chores, that this was rooftop work, so forth: just the labor, the continuity of labor, timeless, and ongoing, without inexorable. Bravo.". . Stan Brakhage. .

A sensuous woman, an angry artist, a mysterious puppet maker, suspicious townspeople, mischievous kids; these are the characters in THE HOUSE WITHOUT STEPS. The setting is contemporary Vermont, but it is Walter Ungerer's Vermont; the landscape, though beautiful and tranquil, is charged with an ominousness familiar to Ungerer films. Everything takes on a greater importance; time loses its boundaries. Through Ungerer's vision, people are transformed into inhabitants of a world that is at once ordinary and strange..

Described in an opening text as a “personal history of cinema, partially inspired by Gilles Deleuze, ” THE THOUGHTS THAT ONCE WE HAD from master cinematic essayist Thom Andersen (Los Angeles Plays Itself, Red Hollywood) is a richly digressive journey through cinema.. A found-footage film composed entirely of unidentified, yet often recognizable, film Filmclips and concise intertitles written by Andersen, Thoughts leap associatively, like Deleuze, across a vast territory spanning from Griffith to Godard, using dynamically cinematic images and sequences not to explain, but to embody Deleuzian ideas in all their rich ambiguity and nuance.. "We don't just learn about Deleuze; we learn it is possible to love blues music, Maria Montez, Communist propaganda films, and Cheech and Chong in equal measure." - Sam Weisberg, Village Voice. "This is a fascinating meditation on film and history and if you're not careful, you just might learn somethin'." - Bradley Gibson, Film Threat

Avant-gardist James Benning and indie icon Richard Linklater may not be filmmakers you immediately associate with each other. Over the years Benning has remained a staunchly experimental, non-narrative filmmaker, while Linklater has won a great deal of mainstream recognition with unlikely classics such as Slacker, Dazed and Confused, and Before Sunrise. The duo have developed a personal and intellectual affinity that dates back to the time Linklater invited Benning to present his work at the Austin Film Society, which he founded in 1985.. Working with legendary producer André S. Labarthe, filmmaker Gabe Klinger set out to document the unique friendship between Benning and Linklater over the course of a few days in Austin and Bastrop, Texas, while the two filmmakers once again presented Benning’s films at the Austin Film Society, played baseball at Linklater’s home, visited old shooting locations, and shared memories over long meals and hikes.. Combining this newly filmed material with extensive archival elements, Double Play contemplates the contrast between these two apparently dissimilar directors even as it persuasively reveals their affinities, both personal and artistic.. Winner of Best Documentary on Cinema at the Venice Film Festival.. "The graceful flow avoids the spoon-feeding of pocket biographies ... Mr. Klinger shepherds along a valuable encounter with a sense of easy, generally uncanned observation." - Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times

In this breathtaking new documentary, noted filmmaker Deborah Stratman recounts eleven episodes from American history to consider how societies are shaped by belief and ideology.. Concentrating on her home state of Illinois (often referred to as a miniature version of America), Stratman extracts, and reflects upon, a series of disruptive historic events–from the violent eviction of the Cherokee to the establishment of a utopian community of French Icarians, the invention of the nuclear reactor and the murder of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton.. Utilizing an array of cinematic tools, including reenactment, archival footage, observational shooting, inter-titles, sound design and voiceover, Stratman probes beneath the surface of our national identity, examining the larger forces at work, and specifically, the role belief and ideology played in its construction.. Official Selection at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival. Winner of the Independent/Experimental Film and Video Award at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards.. "Stratman’s oblique and moving collage argues that ... collective memory ... [resides] not so much in human consciousness as in the lore and topography of places." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
