The Cinematheque proudly ushers in its 1988 screening year with a program of short silent films by filmmakers whose past work is familiar to our audiences: How Have You Been? by Chika Ogura, the filmmaker’s diary filmed since she has lived in the United States; Landscape (For Manon) by Peter Hutton, part one of a series of landscape portraits from the region of the Hudson Valley; Dante Quartet by Stan Brakhage, a hand-painted work 6 years in the making, ‘demonstrating the earthly conditions “Hell”, “Purgatory”, and “Heaven” as well as the mainspring of/from “Hell” in 4 parts which are inspired by the closed-eye or hypnogogic vision created by these emotional states” (S.B.); The Age of Consent by Carmen Vigil, “A work exploring my Catholic shadow world. A dark romance with three women and two bridges.” (C.V.); The Secret Garden by Phil Solomon, “An attempt at a child’s fever dream, within the dark walls of a radiating ‘nuclear’ family. Trouble in paradise.” (P.S.)
