Tonight’s program includes new work by two of Boston’s most prominent young independent filmmakers, each offering a compelling and strikingly original visual style. Avery works mostly with direct animation techniques (cut-out collaging, drawing and coloring on film), adding to the tradition of this specialized area political and diaristic overtones as well as an uncanny feel for color and texture. Avery recently organized a successful series of personal/independent films at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston. Solomon has mastered the optical printer, and has created a variety of fantastic image-scapes which can only be compared to Pat O’Neill’s in their audacity and unpredictability. In addition to making films, Solomon composes and plays music for a variety of instruments.
