Exquisite Luminance

Sundance Kabuki Cinemas

Presented in Association with San Francisco International Film Festival

Marked by their sensitivity to their subjects, these films also articulate the subtleties of light, form, content, and montage in ways that celebrate the moving image. From Tirtza Even’s urban space wizardry in Icarus; to Leighton Pierce’s sublime video manipulations in Viscera; to Lisl Ponger’s politicized constructions of race, ethnicity and class in Phantom Foreign Vienna; to Mara Mattuschka’s delightful collaboration with choreographer Chris Haring in Legal Errorist; be prepared to have your retina tickled and your thoughts provoked. Also screening: Cynthia Madansky and Elle Flander’s The PSA Project #1: Color Theory and #4: Homeland; Penny Lane’s We Are the Littletons: A True Story; Kerry Laitala’s Torchlight Tango; and James T. Hong’s The Form of the Good. (Maïa Cybelle Carpenter)
