> DESCRIPTION

Jordan Belson (U.S., 1959–2005)  Radical Light

In Person            Guest curator Cindy Keefer

Curator and archivist Cindy Keefer is the director of Center for Visual Music (CVM)

Jordan Belson trained as a painter before turning his attention to filmmaking after discovering the abstract films of Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren, and Hans Richter at the seminal Art in Cinema series. Since 1947, Belson has explored consciousness, transcendence, and the nature of light itself in a visionary body of work that has been called “cosmic cinema”—brimming with vibrant color, mandalas, liquid forms, and mesmerizing rhythms. This program features rarely screened films, including Séance (1959), new preservation prints of Momentum (1968) and Chakra (1972), and Epilogue (2005).
