Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Ethnic / Multicultural

ADYNATA offers a vulgar tour of the Other, in this case Imperial China?; Woman?; Madness?; Japan?; Murder?; Eroticism? -- L.T. "The colors are extremely vivid and work to amplify what at first glance appears to be an unruly fetishism of the exotic object. There is too much for the eye - the film seemingly capitulates to the seductive force of visual pleasure. But this richness of the image is somewhat deceptive. It is itself a second-order signifier of an exoticism associated with the discourse of Orientalism which is both quoted and criticized by the film. And, for Thornton, the discourse of Orientalism is precisely a discourse of excess, of hyperbole, of the absurd. In ADYNATA she investigates the mise-en-scene of Orientalism - the conglomeration of sounds and images which connote the Orient for a Western viewer/auditor." -- Mary Ann Doane, Millenium Film Journal, 1987.

PEGGY AND FRED IN HELL (PROLOGUE) is part of an on-going series of films about two small children making their way through a post-apocalyptic landscape. In the prologue, Peggy explores her own voice while Fred decorates the house. They find a flock of dead ducks and decide to move on. PEGGY AND FRED IN HELL will go as far as it can into unfurling the familiar. It is an arbitraty world they live in, not a sensible world, a horrible world, limiting, blind, stupid, arrogant, like any culture. -- L.T. "Fred's performance is a partially intelligible song in which limericks, folksongs, and the Old Testament merge in a final deathblow to culture ... Peggy sings a Michael Jackson song, but rather than performing it she seems to inhabit its legend in a vacant, removed awareness ... The epic ... as a bottomless pit ..." -- Linda Peckham, Unsound, vol. 2, #1.

An exploration of the space where femininity and criminality collide. The film collages archival footage clips culled from silent films, original footage and computer-generated imagery with a series of narratives drawn from true crime confessions, early criminological texts, and the filmmaker's own reflections. The result is a cool and piercing meditation on the way the categories of "woman" and "criminal" have been constructed.

Six Films, 1974-81, Sound And Silent Prints (1981) 16mm, color & b/w, 35 min

Genre: Experimental

WALK THAT DOG: This and the following films constitute a body of "interviews" begun in 1973 and completed in 1981. Although they are not serial in content the films should be shown in chronological order when screened as a group. A chance meeting between the artist, ten young boys, and a yoyo champion in a drug store parking lot provides the substance for this rambling and anarchic filmed interview that at once parodies "man on the street" television interviews while introducing and sustaining an unusual but deliberate verité technique on its own. OBSERVEILLANCE: A lyrical tour guide takes the viewer on a trip down the Wakulla River in North Florida. Although the camera remains relentlessly fixed on him, his vivid, near-musical descriptions of Southern flora, fauna, and wildlife gives a better view of things than total visual mobility could ever allow. CUT: A peculiar homage to the things that go wrong, this film is purportedly about rugby. The self-explanatory title for this jumpy "documentary" is less concerned with the filmed subject (the game, the field, the players) than a comic editing style and the complete acknowledgement given to the technical aspect of gathering and manipulating raw footage. A QUIET AFTERNOON WItH STRANGERS: "A 'silent' interview, QUIET AFTERNOON is the most strange and moving of Turkle's films, documenting the year-round garage sale of an eccentric, elderly Ohio couple. The omission of sound and the focused, grainy attention of their legacy of bric-a-brac, discarded appliances and collected curiosities adds greatly to the film's ultimate emotional effect." -- Frank Young, Florida Flambeau LINCOLN LOGS FOR JESUS: "Playing on all of Tyler Turkle's previous interview films, accelerating and violating their stylistics, LINCOLN LOGS FOR JESUS is a nearly Cubist look at the world. A fast-paced consumer jaunt, almost ritual in nature, winds its way through flashes, repetition, swift cuts, and the reverse switch for an edgy, jarring continuity." -- Steve Dollar, Media X EXCESS, BLACK NOISE, AND FAST MOVING PICTURES: Seventy seconds of furiously energetic filmmaking in which all of the possible pauses in visual and aural activity have been removed. What is left when all of the fat has been trimmed? Monkeys with diamond studded collars, killer fish, and a parade of incongruous images, statements, questions, and answers guided to an exciting climax by a storefront dummy who takes over the interviewing chores midway through the film. "The central idea of Turkle's interview films involves getting around the images that block perception. The film tricks the images or somehow pushes them toward a deliberate self-consciousness, while simultaneously encouraging their chance or found condition. The processes of chance and deliberation combine to produce works of gentle beauty and profound, acerbic wit. Altogether the effects of these films is that of sentiment moved to the power of scrutiny." -- Richard Milazzo, Artmode Exhibition: Herbert F.

Juxtaposing aerial military footage; scientific data on genetic mutation; audio testimony about the bombing of Hiroshima, and a home movie of her father, a World War II Air Force pilot, as he is dispatched to that city, Thornton creates a dense and compelling meditation on violence.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media, Structural

PARALLEL SPACE: INTER-VIEW was made using a still camera. The photograph produced by a 35mm camera corresponds exactly to the size of two film frames. If the negative of a photograph is projected sideways, two film frames are seen: first the upper and then the lower half of the original photographic image is projected. Its temporal and spatial unity disintegrates into pieces which then start corresponding with each other. "Photographic processes - the material transformations involved in recording, developing, printing, and in the case of film, projecting function as metaphors for psychological processes. What Tscherkassky does is to take various tropes of '60s structural filmmaking (derived from Landow, Kubelka, Frampton, Gehr and Sharits) and run them through a Lacanian psychoanalytic sieve. In both form and psychological content, PARALLEL SPACE is deeply reflexive." - Amy Taubin, "Flash Floods: PARALLEL-SPACE: INTER-VIEW"

Are We There Yet? (2010) dvd_ntsc, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: landscape & architecture

When I arrived up in Manor to start the workshops, it was with great delight that I discovered the irrelevance of the border to the participating children;as one of their teachers put it Sure we don't use those words any more; I've a 20 year old who doesn't remember what the trouble were like; there's Leitrim and Fermanagh, there was no way of telling at which point the mysterious line had been passed; even my phone was undecided as to when exactly to welcome me to the UK. It was on one such trip that the footage for the exhibition was shot - an afternoon in January, with one of the celebrated local mists hanging heavy on the hills and the road disappearing into itself around every bend. When the film came back from the lab there seemed to be something interesting about it - enough anyway to provoke me to blow it up to 16mm, with a view to making a loop for the exhibition. The optic printer broke down, repeatedly. It stuttered, it jumped, it stuck; I rewound, started again, reloaded... In the end I kept it all in - the jumps and the flares as well as the conventionally well-behaved footage; for me it represents the apparent paradox of the border and the struggle one faces when attempting to describe something that slippery - landscape? political imposition? colonial hangover? to be avoided in polite conversation? fact of fiction? comedy, tragedy or farce? to which the only answer I could find is another question: are we there yet?

Is What Was (2008) DVD NTSC, , 23 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: ethnic / multicultural, history, personal /diary / journal, political / social activism, queer / bi / trans

Is What Was is an experimental documentary film essay that began as a visual diary of a visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp near Berlin, where gay men were tortured and murdered by the Nazis. My friend Wilhelm Hein brought me to that place in 2007 where I first saw a Pink Triangle that was worn by one of my ancestors-in-spirit. Around the same time I had begun to find vernacular photographs (snapshots) of Nazi soldiers that had been taken by their compatriots during the time of the Holocaust. These photographs were found in disassembled album at flea markets and in private collections in America and Europe. The contradiction between the Nazi persecution of gay men and the visual evidence in the photographs prompted an inquiry into the context in which sexual identity is formulated. This inquiry led directly to the pioneering work of Karl Heinrich Ulruchs (1825-1895). Although Ulrich's ideas of same gender sexuality are steeped in 19th Century imagery, he was nonetheless the first to name it, describe it, and promote it in positive, constructive terms that included not only the sexual aspects of Queer life, but sought to find the whole person in the andere sexualitaet (the other sexuality). Through the understanding of pride and power the contradiction in the photographs can be deciphered, and Ulrichs' "Raethsel" (riddle) can be resolved: Queer Identity encompasses more than sexuality, and therein lays the threat to the power structures of oppression. The film intercuts present day images of Sachsenhausen and Berlin created by photographer Sean Michael Kirk, with the vernacular photographs and moving images to create this experimental visual essay.
