Excavating the Emulsion

Films and Collaborations by Thad Povey

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Co-Presented with Bay Area Now at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Using discarded and forgotten films from commercial and home movies as a quarry, San Francisco filmmaker Thad Povey has been mining for the surprising glimpse into the workings of the human animal. In addition to premiering new work by Povey, the program will include new films-An Alchemical Christmas, Drink From The River-by The Scratch Film Junkies, Povey’s collaborative ‘direct film’ collective and a live projection piece, Night Soil, a collaboration with filmmaker Alfonso Alvarez, with live sound by Lucio Menegon (on guitar) and Mark De Gli Antoni (on sampler and keyboards).
