SCREENING:
Quantum Tunneling (2013) by Kadet Kuhne; digital video, color, sound, 10 minutes, from the maker
Quantum Tunneling is about penetrating boundaries, a process that cannot be directly perceived, but much of its understanding is shaped by the macroscopic world. In quantum mechanics particles can, with a very small probability, tunnel to the other side of barriers. The subject featured in Quantum Tunneling traverses physical and perceived obstacles, into the molecular, atomic and sub-atomic levels of consciousness.” (Kadet Kuhne)

Drain (2012) by Bettina Hoffman; digital video, color, sound, 9 minutes, from the maker bay area premiere
            “Drain depicts three women shot from below, as they move very slowly either in a dancing or a pushing-pulling manner. Through their movement, they allow for a shift in associations, thus allowing for the visualization of an absence of solidarity, until an alliance between two is established that is followed by the oppression of the third one, who is pushed down into water.” (Bettina Hoffman)

The Blue Record (2013) by Erik Anderson and Jeremy Moss; 16mm, color, sound, 17 minutes, print from the makers world premiere
            “An essay film shot on location at Philadelphia’s gothic Eastern State Penitentiary. Interrogating the ‘arrested decay’ of the urban ruins through hand-processed 16mm imagery, the film explores the kinds of memory available to architecture and film.” (Jeremy Moss)

Service of the Goods (2013) by Jean-Paul Kelly; digital video, color, sound, 29 minutes, from the maker bay area premiere
            “Service of the goods is comprised of selected scenes from American filmmaker Frederick Wiseman’s seminal documentaries profiling state-run, tax-funded institutions, including Titicut Follies (1967), High School (1968), Law and Order (1969), Hospital (1970), Basic Training (1971), Juvenile Court (1973) and Welfare (1975). While creating shot-by-shot reproductions of each scene, including accompanying subtitled dialogue, Wiseman’s representational strategy–his overall production and editing process–is, itself, evoked as an institution subject to the same means of observation and expression.” Jean-Paul Kelly

The Lonely Life of Debby Adams (2013) by Karen Yasinsky; digital video, color, sound, 12 minutes, from the maker
            “Images and sounds appear as suggestions and are revisited; clues dispersed. Debby waits in a room not really alone.” (Karen Yasinsky)
