Silent Songs

Three Films by Nathaniel Dorsky

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Nathaniel Dorsky’s new Song and Solitude (2006) was conceived and photographed with the loving help and kindness of his close friend Susan Vigil during the last year of her life. Its balance is more toward an expression of inner landscape, or what it feels like to be, rather than an exploration of the external visual world as such. This latest film will be shown with Threnody and The Visitation. Dorsky’s films refine the everyday into a luminous image, which is neither here, nor beyond the here and now.
