DESCRIPTION

Four acclaimed filmmakers from four different backgrounds come together to explore the body. Rick Bahto uses visual scores he creates, learned from studying traditional and avant-garde classical music. Angelina Krahn incorporates direct filmmaking techniques – scratching, sewing, and chemical alteration, much like sculpture. Karen Johannesen’s intense pamechanics. Stom Sogo uses found footage and documentary techntterns are informed by her training in painting and interest in quantum iques as collage. Their films reflect their respective sensibilities, and the body as subject goes through many different forms. Hypnotic, ethereal, observational, ecstatic: their ideas clash and converge, and spin off into wild directions. Using silence, sound, color, super8, 16mm and video, the collection gains power from rhythmic variation, radiant textures and candid expression.
