Gunvor Nelson: The Long Form, 1984-87

San Francisco Art Institute

Tonight we present two films from Gunvor Nelson’s mature period of the eighties and nineties which the Cinematheque premeried: Red Shift (1984, 50 min.), “a film in black and white about relationships, generations and time,” and Light Years (1987, 28 min.), “a collage film and a journey through the Swedish landscape, traversing stellar distances in units of 5878 trillion miles.” (Gunvor Nelson) Preceded by her short cinematic conundrum Field Study #2.
