62nd Local Filmmakers’ Showcase
Robert Schaller Program
Through, 16mm B+W with live cello, 5 min, 2015
A search for a world that exists beyond the bodies that we are, but one which can only exist because of them: the transcendent which is woven into being by the transient yet potent energy of human existence.

In Lightning Agnes, 16mm B+W, silent, 1 min, 2014
in lightning agnes provides a brief chronicle both a climb in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and a struggle with the materials with which it is told. The film was made using a handmade photographic emulsion prepared and coated onto celluloid outside
on a rock at night using water from a rushing creek, rolled up before dawn during a lightning storm, shot under the constant threat of more lightning, and processed carefully on-location the next night. What results is presented in the order in which it was shot, the result of a collaboration between the filmmakers and the wilderness environment where they were.

Emanations From A Wilderness, 16mm B+W silent (or sound?), ~10 min, 2015
The kaleidoscopic product of a small group of filmmakers who spent two weeks in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness chronicling their experience in and visions of a wild alpine landscape. Shot, processed, printed and edited on location, the film and its process echo much earlier films such as those of Robert Flaherty in tying the wonder of the filmic image materially to the environment which gives it rise. The result is a collaborative compendium of images and visual rhythms that crystalize the many different ways in which humans can see and interact with a mountain realm that is still wild and whole.

Mail, 16mm B+W with live cello and electronics, 10 min, 2013
A letter from the ephemeral pinhole world, sent, written, and received. Physicality by Michelle Ellsworth and Lauren Beale, music by Simon Chritiansen.

Sucia I + II, B+W silent, 6min, 2012/15
Two encounters with a distant island landscape that was mythically remote and magical place in the artist's childhood and a which remains a remote and magical place now.
