New Films: Portraits and Reminiscences

Films by Larry Gottheim, Sharon Couzin, Vincent Grenier, and others


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

Tonight we will present the final group program of new short films of the 1987-88 season, focusing on densely layered portraits and reminiscences by filmmakers. The Red Thread (1987) by Larry Gottheim “was mostly shot in San Francisco and Northern California, with material filmed (using the camera almost as a p/r/a/inter, a means of shaping the visual world as film, but without reflection) in response to what the world was opening in me.” (L.G.); I.D. (Milton) (1988) by Vincent Grenier presents the poet Milton Kessler as he recounts several anecdotes, weaving them into complex new meanings; Pauline (1985) by Sharon Couzin, a portrait of a painter and her world, expressed through the qualities of light and space in her daily life.
