Saturday, December 10, 2022
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
992 Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District.
We are not only thrilled that a former Bay Area artist-hero is is returning to share new work, but in fact triply so that in that he brings with him a pair of creative cohorts from their ambitious new microcinema, seeded in the the high desert of Santa Fe! Yes, Justin Rhody, thee gutsy and ingenious guy behind the marvelous series of Lake Merritt pop-up slide shows a few years back, is visiting with Abigail Smith and Ben Kujawski with a full program of of motion pictures made by each of them, climaxing in sensational expanded cinema pieces...with live musical accompaniment!—violin, flute, accordion, harmonica, and Fender Rhodes stylins’ to double-16mm projections!! Other movies feature work that is hand-sewn, xeroxed, painted-on, and abstracted from S8 and mini-DV, plus digital narratives and found VHS anomalies, including the world premiere of Justin’s 16mm/S8/DV Bruised Fruit & Underfed Flora, the world premiere of Ben Kujawski’s S8 Empty House, and the West Coast premiere of Abigail Smith’s hand-sewn 35mm thread.. AND: The West Coast debut of Justin’s visionary Potemkin collab, splicing back together 35mm sections of Eisenstein’s masterpiece, after some 100 comrades near and far have made their personal, distinctive direct-animation marks in the emulsion!*$9
