Saturday, December 2, 2:15 p.m. | Stan Brakhage (1933-2003), the world’s best known “experimental” filmmaker, made about 400 films over the course of his 51 years of work. He sought to free viewers from knowing objects only by their names or their uses, opening up the near-infinite possibilities for imaginative perceptions. These films in a wide variety of styles were selected from throughout his career by artist and teacher Fred Camper, whose recent book, Seeking Brakhage, collects his own writing on the filmmaker, and who will introduce and host this diverse screening of Brakhage’s work, including THE WONDER RING (1955); THE RIDDLE OF LUMEN (pictured, 1972); SOL (1974); MURDER PSALM (1981); ARABIC 1 (1980); ARABIC 19 (1982); CHARTRES SERIES (1994); SPRING CYCLE (1995), and INTERPOLATIONS 1-5 (1992).
