Urban & Rural Landscapes

Thu, Jan 24, 2013 7 PM

Landscapes have long been a source of inspiration for artists, and this program spotlights the gorgeous restoration of two films that took that inspiration to unbelievably unique places. Described by critic J. Hoberman as one of the best films of the 1990s, Ernie Gehr’s Side/Walk/Shuttle (1991) is among the most stunning cinematic portraits of San Francisco: “Pure sensation,” Hoberman called it, “a slow-motion roller coaster.” In a more pastoral exploration, Larry Gottheim’s Barn Rushes (1971) provides a multifaceted portrait of a single barn and its ever-changing landscape. (77 mins., 35mm & 16mm)
