Color of Love, The (1994) 16mm, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Found Footage, Hand Processed

"The last word in ready-mades, Peggy Ahwesh's THE COLOR OF LOVE ... is a slightly slo-mo, optical reprint of an obviously ill-treated '70s porn movie in which the chemical rot that's already eaten away the edges of the image threaten to censor it entirely. ... An ur-text for Ahwesh's work, THE COLOR OF LOVE is an almost Rose Hobart for the '90s." -- Amy Taubin, The Village Voice

Fissures (1999) 16mm, color, 2.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

A film about forgetting and remembering, about past presences and the traces they leave. In making this piece, I literally manipulated and distorted the film plane through experimentation in doing my own contact printing of personal home movie images. The point of contact is continuously shifted so that the film plane appears warped and the images fluctuate, creating a distorted space of fleeting apparitions, like resurfacing memories. The footage was hand-processed and solarized as well as colored by hand through toning before a final print was made at the lab. "... a very short film that meshes the beautifully overlapping style of Bruce Baillie with rhythm and sound to create a meditation in blue." -- Stephen Brody, artsMEDIA, March 15-April 15, 2000

Very (2001) 16mm, color, 3.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

The second, of these companion films (interspersed by a "Technicolor+ countdown") introduces The Movies (Narrative Dramatic Scenes briefly flickering midst hypnogogic-painting) in addition to the closed-eye vision and language combination of Night Mulch. "Subversive" and "Liberating" are repeated, but "Liberating" actually seems to be withdrawing (zooming away) in the mixture of paints. To emphasize The Movies, these is a brief tribute to the actor Michael Caine. The resolution of these contesting 'force-fields; of visual thought (as I imagine them) is a sense of distinction of hypnagogic over and above Photography (or Picture-i. e. a collector of framed named things) as well as the words/names themselves.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

Red and ephemeral blue and purple plant shapes half-curled against a tan ground, which begins to flash white cracks in dried mud patterns. Aflush of watery blues (in this hand-painted step-printed film) brightens the plant-skein into a variety of greens mixed into all other colors-all darkening into smeared mud-blacks with microscopic beseeming black "splatters" (where mud-like cracks used to be.) The turquoise blues, red and tans resolve into a flare of red at end.

Resurrectus Est (2002) 16mm, color, 9 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

Resurrectus Est is a hand painted film which suggests, from the first, a spread of fragments of plants and flowers, individual petals and bits of twig with multiple colors, with much green "leafiness". This gives way to solid yellows and browns of, or suggesting, dried grass and earth (the decay, as it were, of the above mentioned fragments); but then again, and so spaced with clear light whites as to appear airy, wind-blown, somesuch, miniscule fragments of plant life, gradually enlarging to fill-the-frame. Amidst the many floral and earthen tones, there is a particular ethereal pale, almost phosphorescent, blue which so dominates the scenes of its appearance as to cause the darker earthen yellows to lighten into a mixture with the blue that suggest abstract Easter: these tones finally take over to such an extent that the flower-fragments can no longer be seen clearly as such. The whole work turns upon the dominance of yellow-and-blue to such an extent that, by end, the film can only be seen as "visual music", completely (or predominantly) "abstract" and as if composed of air itself (quite distinct, say, from "blue sky" "yellow sun" somesuch).

Mothlight (1963) 16mm, color, 4.00 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature, Hand-processed

8mm reduction only on sale from Stan Brakhage. What a moth might see from birth to death if black were white and white were black. Brakhage made MOTHLIGHT without a camera. He just pasted mothwings and flowers on a clear strip of film and ran it through the printing machine. -- Jonas Mekas. MOTHLIGHT is a paradoxical preservation of pieces of dead moths in the eternal medium of light (which is life and draws the moth to death); so it flutters through its very disintegration. This abstract of flight captures matter's struggle to assume its proper form; the death of the moth does not cancel its nature, which on the filmstrip asserts itself. MOTHLIGHT is one level a parable of death and resurrection, but most really concerns the persistence of the essential form, image, and motion of being. -- Ken Kelman.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

A long myth drawn directly onto the film's surface, which is painted, dyed, treated so that it will grow controlled crystals and mold-as-textures of the figures and forms of the drama -- some images stamped thru melted wax crayon techniques, some images actual objects (such as moth wings) collaged directly on the celluloid ... so that the protagonists of this myth (as listed in the title) weave thru crystalline structures and organic jungles of the colorful world of hypnagogic vision -- edited into "themes and variation" that tell "a thousand and one" stories while, at the same time, evoking Baroque music ... the primary musical inspiration being the harpsichord sonatas of Dominico Scarlatti. This print is FADED.

Fauve (1991) 16mm, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

FAUVE is a paper film made by a unique paper process which I invented and have employed here as a monochromatic study of rhythm and mood and the physics of light waves leaving a source - one sees the red, or longest waves, first, the blue, or shortest waves, last, and in my film, one's left in the UV light world of peripheral vision. The original score by Peter Wetzler adds to the textural, tactile, visual experience of FAUVE.

Autumn Leaves (1994) 16mm, color, 5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

The splendor and pleasures of Autumn are the focus of this richly textured and brilliantly colored paper emulsion film. The sound is a recording of the filmmaker ripping, rustling and tearing various kinds of paper. These sounds have been synthesized and musically arranged to echo the imaging of the synthesis paper. A reel of paper and fallen leaves unwinds amid calls of birds and the laughter of delighted children. "Donna Cameron's work crosses the boundaries of film and painting. Her paper emulsion films are made via a process closer to assemblage than photography and draw attention to the sensuous properties of the celluloid medium." -- Richard Herskowitz, Newsletter of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Ithaca, NY "Donna Cameron is a diehard New Yorker whose art mirrors that city's pulse." -- Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times "Brooklyn native Donna Cameron's films are warm, humorous and well crafted. ... The remarkable thing about her [work] is her sensitivity to the rapid flow of textures. ... Cameron's technique has evolved into a highly sculptural motion picture painting." -- Helen Knode, LA Weekly

Canvas (1995) VHS NTSC, color, 22 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

CANVAS is an enclosure, as is any body of painting. It engages the act of painting: movement, gesture, pigment, orientation, space and the act of filming. The frames are the accruence of pigment, oils, dyes, gesso, applied with brushes, knives and hands to the surface. The surface, or emulsion, is either my own paper emulsion or commercial Kodak emulsion and has been treated to represent open-weave linen. To my sensibility, the screen, either film or video, or the canvas, are synonymous - they are the medium through which the image passes.

End Memory (Impromptu) (1995) 16mm, color, 5.5 min

Keywords: Hand-processed

About ends and memory, the end of an era. I film to remember: the end of a summer, of a family, a last trip to Vermont before a separation, grandparents getting older.... I film impromptu, dissolving and fading in the camera. At night I develop the film in a beaker. It sticks together and stains, leaving traces and holes that only add to the nostalgia. I leave the film as is, adding only some improvised music, which by its minor harmonies and discordances goes well with the faded, stained pictures.

Music by Michael Luck. "... No photographed images. All handmade. It's all these squares, lines. The main techniques were bleaching and dyeing and sticking letraset material to the film strip. The images don't rush: they much more fold over the top of one another. Palimpsest. Using the pos/neg flickering helps to sustain the images..." -- D. bB. from "Where's Our Satellite," Melbourne, Australia (1985) inserting film strips to sustain shapes, otherwise you're talking about the one film all the time: it begins to look the same. There is a growing need to sustain shapes, patterns, etc. Hence the squares, lines. Breaking away from the rush of shapes. It's more of a problem to get away from in VISION because there are no photographic images. A very ordered film. Very Dutch. Took it all out of 800 ft. of this type of stuff and ended up with 150 ft. of selected squares and circles. Mondrian-inspired.

Arapadaptor (I Feel So) is an abstract film of mostly found sound and cameraless images. Most of the source material was unwittingly supplied by a Chinese herbalist. To produce ARAPADAPTOR I applied my flashlight and laser, ala Man Ray, to the caterpillars, cicadas and seeds of the herbal packages, and this was only the beginning. Much of the original footage was further manipulated - painted, tinted and/or bleached. Finally, the images were rephotographed, slowed, through the use of an optical printer.

Awake, But Dreaming (2000) 16mm, color, 8 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

This completely hand processed 16mm film was shot in the Hirschgang Oberer, an extended, curved hallway at the Akademie Schloss Solitude. The filmmaker was residing there in 1998-1999 for a residency, and started several film projects at Solitude. "Awake, but Dreaming" recreates a sense of an endless cyclical, dreamscape that is being conjured up from the deep recesses of the imagination. The images are coupled with a mysterious soundtrack producing uncanny associations: the flapping of wings, shrill cries of birds, a revolver fired off following unseen footsteps, a broken music box plays forgotten tunes from a forgotten childhood. A disembodied, hovering presence evokes a menace that is intimated through the sonorous resonance, but never manifests itself. However, the dreamer never reaches the apex of consciousness, but lingers repeatedly in the periphery of alchemically enhanced light and shadow. The cavernous intrauterine space is one of potentials, where anything can happen if the viewer can enter the portal of experience. Supported by Academie Schloss Solitude

There's nothing unusual about using pins, nails, surgical instruments, etc. on film. It's as old as Flash Gordon and as recent as Storm De Hirsch's incredible conjurings. But Stu does it fantastically: it just floats by and ends in a solar prominence. So while its not a breakthrough in technique, it's a beautiful application of it."-Wheeler Dixon

Using hand-painted film, animation and an inventive soundtrack, INTRODUCTION TO OOBIELAND is an exploration of gateways: a repeated series of movements from the familiar and safe to the unknown and dangerous.

In this way the film touches on our oldest instincts, leaving us saddened and scared by the knowledge of a world that will never know freedom through the completion of action; safety through the sanctification of place.

"One of the most incredible movies at Tribeca [2010] is, at 49 minutes in length, probably the least commercial: Dustin Thompson's avant-garde documentary [The] Travelogues ... He is a democratic tourist: a lover, an Italian cathedral, and surfers in a Munich river carry equal narrative weight. The mini-narratives, however, are distinguished between differing angles and speeds; form sets them apart. This is fantastic stuff, a festival film that makes you feel that life in worth living, and Tribeca worth attending." -Howard Feinstein, Filmmaker Magazine Also available on Blue Ray Disc and HDCAM.

Made towards the end of my tenure as a grunt worker in a film processing lab, at a time when I was spending most of my days slacking off down in the lab's sub basement playing with raw film stock and reversal chemicals. This was a fairly disgusting space with dirt floors and four-foot ceilings from which the leaking guts hung down from the operation above, but it was open, and I could stretch out full 100' foot rolls of film from end to end on the floor. From there, I could freely apply developers, bleaches and fixers in whatever ways I could think of, usually mashing in the dust, leaves, and garbage that was kicked up in the process. -JL

Doubt #2 (2013) 16mm, color, 3 min

Genre: Animation, Experimental

Keywords: cameraless, hand-processed, personal/diary/journal, spiritual/mystical, structural

An ongoing series of investigations that attempt to penetrate film's enigmatic materiality in tandem with the vagaries of my own emotional and psychological states. Each installment consists of a single 100' roll of 16mm black and white film stock exposed with simple vertical lines that follow the natural trajectory of the film strip. Working under red light, the emulsion is then treated by hand with various chemical applications, giving the strip it its color, texture, and sense of movement. Although an idea of progress from roll to roll is not necessarily an objective, I do have sense that working and struggling with the material in this way will symbiotically further my understanding of what film is made of, and what I am made of. -JL

Tic Tac (2011) DVD NTSC, b&w, 3 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: children and youth, hand processed, landscape and architecture

"Tic Tac is a zigzagging parkour move in which the runner pushes off from a surface to jump over obstacles or climb tight spaces between buildings. However, not much of the eponymous technique can be seen in young filmmaker Josephine Ahnelt's work: The movement takes place in the protagonists' faces. Tic Tac examines in microscopic detail the psychological processes that play out while a group of young parkour traceurs do their thing. The camera focuses on their facial expressions and gestures, their anxiety and nervousness, and also their pleasure and pain.

Ahnelt, a former pupil of Friedl Kubelka, works with a representational process in which the internal field of tension is reflected in the external field of tension and the ledges and concrete slabs that must be surmounted. The former entails the testing of one's own competitive ability and performance and how they are put to use. The film also reflects in this intermediate space on the representational process' social aspects: The activity itself, which is meant to be observed, is left out, and instead the gaze is directed at this more or less enthusiastic desire.

The scratches on the grainy Super 8 film stock evoke vague memories of a time filled with friction. The film's visual grammar combines with reminiscences of a transitional phase for which terms such as "coming of age" are employed to describe dramatic structure in film. The absence of sound underlines the impression of distance. Ahnelt's black-and-white work is a timeless description of a state of being. In the shooting process, the film, which was edited in the camera, also reflects the fleeting nature and unpredictability of the states it portrays." -Angelika Unterholzner

Water from Grain (2013) DVD NTSC, b&w, 13 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: children & youth, hand processed

The poetry of Water from Grain grows out of an apparent contradiction stemming from its seeming timelessness while it plays out on the clearly recognizable outskirts of Vienna in the years of 2011 and 2012. Josephine Ahnelt accompanies two youths, a boy and a girl, with her Super-8 camera. Her main interest is focused upon the woman, her subtle beauty and her shapely form. Black and white and silent, the film focuses upon the visual impact of fleeting moments employing lighting, facial expression and gesture rather than dialogue to conjure its atmosphere. The footage was hand processed and is hence blemished, the resulting impurities obscuring and transcending certain scenes.

The first chapter unfolds at an airport. There where the longing for far away places and the other provides the stuff of fantasy the protagonists lean against the railing of a parking garage and gaze downwards, they pursue each other in a game of catch and the young woman poses in the shadow play of the concrete desert. She seems older than the young man, more thoughtful and closer to adulthood. Both seem to use this anonymous place of transit as a location for their freedom and curiosity, as a space for unsupervised movement. In the meantime, three other young people take happy and affectionate leave of a fourth person. They are older and have reason to be at the airport. The third chapter of the film also takes place in a public space, a small park that serves as a good meeting place for the two youths and their friends. Their physical enactment of tussling and necking are expressions of boredom as well as a youthful discovery of sensuality.

Where does the trip of life lead? As viewers we know nothing about the protagonists, everything is a matter of projection and guessing: But it is precisely in this indirect, lyrical, documentary-like form that a voyeuristic enthusiasm for stories beyond pure representation finds nourishment. -Brigitta Burger-Utzer

Your Day is My Night (2013) DVD, HD Cam, Blu-Ray, color, 65 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: dance, ethnic/multicultural, hand processed, history, landscape and architecture, theatre, music

In Chinese, English & Spanish with English Subtitles. Music by Stephen Vitiello. Camera by Sean Hanley and Ethan Mass. Featuring: Yi Chun Cao, Linda Y.H. Chan, Chung Qing Che, Ellen Ho, Yun Xiu Huang, Sheut Hing Lee, Kam Yin Tsui, & Veraalba Santa.

Synopsis: Blending autobiographical monologues, intimate conversations, and staged performances, Lynne Sachs' Your Day Is My Night documents the lives of Chinese immigrants sharing a 'shift-bed' apartment in the heart of New York City's Chinatown, offering a deeply felt portrait of the Asian-American immigrant experience. Initially documented in Jacob Riis' late 19th century photographs, a shift-bed is a bed that is shared or rented by people who are neither in the same family nor in a relationship. Since the advent of tenement housing in the Lower East Side, working class people have shared beds, making such spaces a definable and fundamental part of immigrant life. Over a century later, the shift-bed remains a necessity for many, triggered by socio-economic barriers embedded within the urban experience. In this captivating hybrid documentary, seven characters ranging in age from 58 to 78 play themselves and recount real experiences from their lives. Retired seamstresses Ellen Ho and Sheut Hing Lee recall growing up in China during the turmoil of the 1950s when their families faced violence and separation under Chairman Maoʼs revolutionary yet authoritarian regime. Yun Xiu Huang, a nightclub owner from Fujian province, reveals his journey to the United States through the "snakehead" system, a complex underground economy of human smuggling. As the bed transforms into a stage, the film reveals a collective history of Chinese immigrants in the United States. Through it all, Your Day is My Night addresses issues around privacy, intimacy, otherness, belonging and the urban experience via the basic human need of a place to sleep.

PRESS "A strikingly handsome, meditative work: a mixture of reportage, dreams, memories and playacting, which immerses you in an entire world that you might unknowingly pass on the corner of Hester Street, unable to guess what's behind the fifth-floor windows." -The Nation
"Beautifully blending anecdotes, evocative audio textures, and an ensemble of elderly immigrant performers/participants, Your Day is My Night is sumptuous and exploratory, bringing us a Chinatown we have never seen before in film." -San Diego Asian Film Festival
"Using beds as a metaphor for privacy, intimacy and power, the film explores intercultural and trans-historical dialogue." -The Washington Post
"Director Lynne Sachs' Your Day is My Night shines a light on a little documented sub-culture in New York's Chinatown, chronicling immigrants who live communally in buildings where there's a shift-bed system. One person returns from a stint of overnight work to sleep in a bed just vacated by another person off to their day job. The form of this documentary is as compelling as its content. It is a beautiful collage of different media and music intricately edited together with the often emotional testimony of the immigrants." -BBC
"New York's Chinatown, a place as much spectral as real, flickers and flares into life in this singular hybrid of documentary, performance piece and cine-monologue. Seven working-class, immigrant residents of a shift-bed apartment play versions of themselves, recalling violent upheavals, long journeys and endless yearnings." -Sight and Sound "Moving and Profound." -Michael Moore

The originals were destroyed with other ICUR (University, Montevideo) during the 70's dictatorship in Uruguay. Walter Dassori returned to Darino in NYork some tests and in 2010 a few loose shots were found. Since then Darino worked reconstructing the animation with the same techniques as the original. Oreson Welles comment was "Darino was surrealistic" and Peter Cowie, from Variety and International Film Guide that "Ed polarized images way before Andy Warhol." APEX world premiere was at San Francisco Cinemateque 2015 on a program by Angela Lopez Ruiz.
