Since the early 1960s, Nathaniel Dorsky has been making extraordinarily beautiful films that blend a reverence for the sensual world with a deep contemplation of the mysteries beyond. They are “occasions for reflection and meditation on light, landscape, time, and the motions of consciousness,” writes curator Steve Polta. Dorsky’s “photography emphasizes the elemental frisson between solidity and luminosity...while his uniquely developed montage permits a fluid and flowing experience of time.” In this rare Chicago appearance, Dorsky presents four recent films, SUMMER (2013), INTIMATIONS (2015), AUTUMN (2016), and THE DREAMER (2016), each suffused with grace, joy, and mourning for changing seasons and times. Silent. 16mm. (Amy Beste)
