Rhythms Of Contemplation

Recent Films By Guy Sherwin

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

For the past thirty years English filmmaker Guy Sherwin has been exploring visual perception through a body of films that subtly focus on such subjects as natural landscapes, the visualization of verbal language and observations of animate and inanimate objects as fields for contemplation. Sherwin’s films are rigorously conceived and realized, while also being sensually and intellectually rewarding. For his first Cinematheque presentation in more than a decade Guy will show Messages, Filter Beds, Flight and selections from the in-progress series Animal Studies. (Steve Anker)
