A Re-presentation

San Francisco Art Institute

The films in this program are situated at the delicate intersection of fact and fiction. Employing fictional elements as a means of grounding both subject and viewer, they leave open the question of whether narrative is the inevitable condition of film. Rube and Mandy at Coney Island (1903) by Edwin S. Porter; Eaux D’artifice (1953) by Kenneth Anger; All My Life (1966) by Bruce Baillie; 9-1-75 (1975) by James Benning; Behind The Scenes (1975) by Ernie Gehr; I, An Actress (1977) by George Kuchar.
