Winter Fire

Films of Hannes Schüpbach

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

With a meticulous attention to detail and exquisite sensuality, Hannes Schüpbach’s beautifully photographed films are elegant weaves of color and light, forming meditative and precisely timed tapestries of wonder and revery. Similar to the rigorously lyrical works of Robert Beavers and Nathaniel Dorsky, Schüpbach’s films transcend their diaristic origins and present the world anew, as luminous silent mystery. He joins us tonight from his native Switzerland to present Toccata, Falten and Winter Feuer. Copies of two publications on his work—Falten and Film Solo—will be available at the screening. Thanks to Swiss Films for their support of this program.
