Tender Visions

Two Premieres

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Nathaniel Dorsky is a San Francisco treasure. As a professional film editor, educator, and author, Dorsky’s name is associated with a sublime and precise vision. For forty years he has made his own films out of tender encounters with the minute and the vast. He will join with us to present The Visitation (2002) and his most recent, Threnody (2004), which just premiered at the reopening celebration of MoMA in New York. These two devotional songs will be preceded by Triste (1996), the first work of a quartet of exquisitely photographed films from the 1990s. (Konrad Steiner)
