FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS MIX ME A WALK – FIVE FILMS BY VANESSA RENWICK

MONDAY, APRIL 11, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES

32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003

$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

 

Filmmaker in person! Prolific and iconoclastic Oregon filmmaker Vanessa Renwick comes to Anthology Film Archives to present an adrenaline-pumping, awe-inspiring and sometimes brutal program of new works on video, including several NYC premieres. The program of five films, Mix Me A Walk, is a both meditation and a holler, using stunning cinematography and rare archival fragments to offer up both the grandeur and the violence of nature. Wildlife may be the star of this show, but these five films amply demonstrate why Renwick has been a star in the underground film scene for decades. Post-screening discussion moderated by filmmaker Esther Robinson.

 

Program

 

Red Stallion’s Revenge (16mm to video, 7 min., 2007) A remixed, re-scored 1943 western shot at the base of Mt. Shasta featuring the grudge match of the century between a horse and a bear.

 

Food is a Weapon (16mm & Super8 to video, 4 min., 1998) Haunting logging footage from the 1940's, revealing old growth treasures looted for the war effort.

 

Woodswoman (video, 10 min., 2010) The book Woodswoman by Anne LaBastille burns hypnotically in a fireplace, and we learn the place of the book in Renwick’s life, as well as the fate of LaBastille.

 

FULL ON LOG JAM (video, 16 min., 2010) A meditation on the forests of the Cascade Mountain Range in Northern Oregon, LOG JAM captures the grandeur of nature in a way that makes us all too aware of our human transience and vulnerabilities.

 

Hope and Prey (3-channel video, 23 min., 2010) features stunning wildlife cinematography of animals hunting in a winter landscape. The dramatic, sometimes brutal nature cinematography is transformed through high-contrast recomposition and a hyper-dynamic score from Portland's infamous underground composer Daniel Menche.
