The Cinematheque presents the first of two programs highlighting work by filmmakers from Boston and Chicago. Tonight’s program was curated by Caroline Avery, filmmaker and Programmer for the new Film Series at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston.

Cecile Fontaine: Correspondance, A Color Movie, and others, 16mm & super 8mm — “Using direct animation techniques, Fontaine creates moving abstract paintings with occasional recognizable images surfacing free from their usual connotations.” — C.A.

Genevieve Bosshard: Reader, 16mm — “A ‘true love-story’. It explores the development of love from infatuation to convenience.” — C.A.

Cindy Greenhalgh: Plastic Primer, Now Everything Is Better, and Graditude, 16mm — “Well-known for her aggressive manipulation of film’s plastic qualities, these works explore the alignment/misalignment of image and thought.” — C.A

Gregg Paxton: Short Sketches, super-8mm — “Paxton makes fleeting graphic meditations. Like sonnets, these films concentrate discrete moments in particular images.” — C.A.

Denise O’Malley: Jestering and Candle For Liza, 16mm — “Exquisite works which examine film’s ability to form relationships: subject and filmmaker, camera and object, characters within the film.” — C.A.
