Tree–Line and Others by Gunvor Nelson

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Tonight we welcome the great Swedish-American filmmaker Gunvor Nelson back to SF Cinematheque for the first time since 1995 with her new digital video, Tree–Line, “a minimalistic video, a kind of repetitious stammering with complex variations in rhyme and locomotion.” (G. Nelson) Also included will be screenings of Nelson’s richly evocative and haunting film tapestries Light Years Expanding (1987), Field Study #2 (1988), Time Being (1991), and Old Digs (1992). (S. Anker)
