Jennifer Reeves: Light Work

Program 1: Live Cinema Works

Artists' Television Access

Presented in association with ATA’s Other Cinema.

Kicking off the Light Works retrospective, Jennifer Reeves’ tonight presents some of her most recent projects-elaborate film experiences presented in richly colored and extensively hand-manipulated 16mm celluloid. Even as filmmakers’ attentions turn towards the digital, the multi-screened and performative works on tonight’s program-Light Work Mood Disorder and He Walked Away-eschew single strand/single screen presentation and expand on the artists’ already accomplished work with abstract visuals and direct-film techniques, providing, in the words of Timothy Zwettler, “a big reminder of the fragile, forgotten materiality of film for a new generation of artists.” Also screening: 1999’s Darling International (co-directed by M.M. Serra), excerpts from in-progress multi-screen works and other surprises exclusive to the San Francisco engagement. (Steve Polta)
