Brakhage, Deren, and Anger
Brakhage, Deren, and Anger Sun January 18, 2015 To Sun January 18, 2015


Dog Star Man (Prelude) by Stan Brakhage: Our program’s first film focuses on the physical object of the celluloid film strip. In this award-winning, experimental epic of biblical proportions, Brakhage employs superimposed cinematography, painting, and various manipulations applied directly to the surface of the film. Meshes of the Afternoon by Maya Deren: Next we look at narrative events. The most common form of cinematic exhibition, Deren manipulates typical narrative by using recurring images and fragmented timelines, as a meditation on experience and memory, domestic banality and violence, imagination and causality. Scorpio Rising by Kenneth Anger: This final film on our program discusses the camera as a machine. Anger uses this complex cinematic machinery while exploring the machinery of humanity, in this mythic view of the American Motorcyclist.
