Just Get Me Out Of Here

New Films By Timoleon Wilkins and Jeremy Coleman

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

From mystical desert landscapes to neo-real Korean city scenes, these short poetic works by two San Francisco-based filmmakers create a world of warmth and clarity where vibrant hues contrast with silky pastels in a common exploration of unfamiliar territory. Tonight’s program includes two San Francisco premieres: Coleman’s Hankook Trilogy, an interpretive cine-graph of South Korean society, and Wilkins’ Chinatown Sketch, a sensuous layered diary of street life in San Francisco’s Chinatown District. Also included: Coleman’s hand-painted I, Zupt 49 and Ecclesiastic Vibrance; Wilkins’ metaphorical desert study Lake of the Spirits and others to be announced. (J. Coleman and T. Wilkins)
