> DESCRIPTION

"The profoundness of Gottheim's art is to elaborate a body of work outside of fashion and within a search for an authentic language of cinematic discourse." John Hanhardt

This program surveys the trailblazing career of one of America's foremost avant-garde masters. Best known for the cycle Elective Affinities, a series of four feature-length films started in the early 1970s and completed in 1981, Gottheim has carried out an absorbing exploration of the relationship of images to sound and time, examined issues of racial, cultural and personal identity, and considered the theme of nature in art. He is also the founder of the influential Department of Cinema Studies at SUNY Binghamton. The program this evening includes Mouches Volantes (Elective Affinities II, 1976, 69 min., 16mm) and other works that prefigure and develop this mode of working with repetition and variation.
