Expropriated Images: Recent Found Films


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

Fascination with found or appropriated material continues to be one of the prime interests among independent/ experimental filmmakers, and the Fall Cinematheque calendar includes films by several who have worked extensively within this mode. Tonight’s program offers a sampler of approaches to the reworking of pre-existing imagery, and several are by local filmmakers. All are laced with social and political motifs which a critical distance from the past affords.

Films: Right Eye/Left Eye by Janis Crystal Lipzin, Covert Action by Abigail Child, Man With A Movie Camera (blonde: he appears to be young) by Keith Sanborn, Perfect Film by Ken Jacobs, RocketKitKongoKit by Craig Baldwin, Black Sun Series (triptych for three projectors) by Chuck Hudina.
