Circles of Confusion

Sundance Kabuki Cinemas

Presented in association with the San Francisco International Film Festival

Appropriated from a righteously poetic scientific term describing the physics of lenses, “circles of confusion” refers to the impossibility of cameras to achieve technically perfect focus. The production of ambiguity and excess is inevitable during the translation of light through an optic. Similarly, each of the titles in this program reorient our perception, often pointing viewers towards the processes of the film’s production. Whether through playful and confusing visuals or challenging dramatic techniques, they disrupt the construction of easy interpretations and resonate with our desire to experience the poignant and strange.
Featured artists include: Jay Rosenblatt, Sergio Basso, Tess Girard, Cathy Begien, Désirée Holman, Amy Hicks, Olivo Barbieri, Katherin McInnis, and Semiconductor.

NOTE: This program also screens this Saturday, April 22 at 3:30 pm. For complete film descriptions and ticketing information, please visit: http://fest06.sffs.org/films/film_details.php?id=15
