Nelson & Wiley

Before Need Redressed

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Renowned Bay Area filmmakers (Schmeerguntz, Fog Pumas) Gunvor Nelson and Dorothy Wiley return to the Cinematheque to premiere Before Need Redressed (1994) which entirely re-works the material which comprised Before Need (1979). Of the later they said “We started with some dream images, a few actors, friends and relatives. The snow has melted and it was impossible to repeat. Standards of perfection applied to all the selves. The relationships, the layers of memory. Where are the tables for one?” For Gunvor Nelson’s first appearance in San Francisco since 1992, she will also show her sublime and little-seen Light Years Expanding (1986).
