From The Bay And Beyond, New Films I

Visible Traces

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

We will begin our New Year with two programs celebrating recent films from the Bay Area and around the country, most of which are premiering or being shown at the Cinematheque for the first time. Tonight’s selection includes Timoleon Wilkins MM, a meditation on his birth and death and that of film; Mark LaPore’s beautiful but troubling cultural portrait A Depression In The Bay of Bengal, Jennifer Reeves’ high-energy emulsion manipulated The Girl’s Nervy, one of Stan Brakhage’s finest hand painted efforts The Little “b” Series; Jeremy Coleman’s subtle visual poem Dust On The Water, Steve Polta’s sensory conundrum Picture Window, and Jeanne Liotta’s tracing of mortality and nothingness C’eci Nes Pas.
