Story of the Western World, The (1980) 16mm, color, 16 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: History

A very subjective view of western history, leading to a culmination in a view of contemporary western art. If history can be seen as a series of collisions of opposing forces giving rise to unpredictable syntheses that are more than simply the sums of the parts, then this film was made in a manner analogous to the process of history.

Art Institutionalized (Sfai 1980) (1980) 16mm, black and white, 3.75 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists, Comedy, Films about Film, Media

A humorous parody about the condition of creative film studies in Art Schools and Colleges in general. The soundtrack is a composition combining the musical score from the film Ballet Mecanique and the voices of the film students testing various pieces of film recording equipment and complaining about grades and procedures. The visuals reveal a modern day mechanical ballet performed by the instructor (myself) on the dada chessboard of absolute reality to the automatic beat of an intervolometer clicking time away one frame per second, as he attempts to relay technical data to his students.

Mexican Jail Footage (1980) 16mm, color, 17.30 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: History

Images from 1968 events combined with 1980 voice recollections. Paranoid surreptitious camera records daily events and posturing of 25 gringos jailed without charge-and fellow Mexican prisoners-prior to the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. Was there collusion behind this? We were never told but this was at a height of national polarization, when American tourists in Mexico were shocked to find more of the youths they thought they'd left behind -- and when Mexican Government was administering national preening in its own paranoiac anticipation of the international Olympics exposure six months later. The soundtrack narration's culled from a much longer account I wrote of the event: it is told as directly as I could tell it. MEXICAN JAIL FOOTAGE reminds me of standing by the tracks and watching a train go by -- it is so strong, it lasts so long, and it is over so quickly. -- Tom Whiteside NORTH CAROLINA ANVIL

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

Barlett narrates MAKING SERPENT and describes the creative process behind SERPENT, his award winning short of 1971. MAKING SERPENT is a step-by-step teaching device that explores film techniques such as: how to structure a non- verbal narrative; how to shoot film for special editing techniques; how to isolate universal images in nature; how to make exciting visuals inexpensively. Shown together with SERPENT, this film becomes an important educational aid for film and art students alike. An entire film course in cinemagraphics. -- Gail Silva, Film Arts Foundation, California I consider it a reasonable antidote to some of the loose pretensions of structural film. -- Stan Brakage, Filmmaker Colorado Eisenstein Film Form Continued on Film. -- Bruce Baillie, Filmmaker, Washington.

Chicken Real (1980) 16mm, color, 22.45 min

Genre: Documentary

An industrial short made for the world's second largest poultry producer, CHICKEN REAL incorporates subversive bits of satire in its promotion of the assembly-line approach to mass-manufacturing food. Music recorded in North Carolina, of a group playing all the chicken songs they knew. Blank shot this documentary for an automated chicken growing operation that produces 156 million chicken a year! He brought all his skill to bear on the project, and added a narration that's only barely tongue-in cheek. It's his funniest film, one that works on its own terms as a fascinating documentary on the chicken biz and also a humorous comment on itself. Surreal images abound -- hundreds of chickens clicking toward a feeding belt, thousands of chicks huddling together is a giant breeding room, dead chickens flying across a table, passing through hellish flames on a conveyer, receiving giblet transplants. But the most interesting thing is that Blank evades the issue of chicken death completely -- skipping in an instant from live chickens to dead ones with absolutely no mention that birds are dying. It's the only Blank film in which death is never acknowledged -- and as a result death pervades the picture as it does no other. Chickens of incomparable succulence. -- Micheal Goodwin, Pacific Film Archive

Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe (1980) 16mm, color, 23.00 min

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: Art & Artists, Films about Film, Media

In 1979, Les Blank took a brief detour from his filmic path through traditional American music to film German filmmaker Werner Herzog honoring a vow he claims he made to Errol Morris, A Berkeley student, that he (Herzog) would eat his shoe if Morris ever got off his butt and actually made one of his films he was forever talking about. Stung into action, Morris directed GATES OF HEAVEN, a highly acclaimed film about a pet cemetery -- and Herzog, true to his word, returned to Berkeley to consume one of his desert boots in front of a large audience at the UC Theater. The film reveals an obsessive, self destructive almost superhuman dimension to Herzog that people must have the guts to attempt what they dream of. Herzog adds comment on the value of cinema and the need for a new grammar of images. Definitely the strangest of Blank's love letters to food, and a major addition to the small shelf of films in filmmaking. The strength of this definitely unusual little film is Herzog eccentric brilliance which Blank captures as well as he did the singers in DEL MERO CORAZON. -- Rick Chatenever, Santa Cruz Sentinel

"Shot in murky black and white with a super-aggressive, super-nervous, super-8 trigger finger, INVASION is a DEVOesque time machine collapsing 50's lobotomization on 70's ecological blight to breed a future race of broiler foil mummies. Virgil, the hero, follows a path that parallels Kevin McCarthy's in the original INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, but Boone's blithe disregard for linear continuity produces a more divinely spacey comedia than Hollywood ever imagines." -- Amy Taubin, SoHo News

Arabic 1 (1980) 16mm, color, 3.5 min

Genre: Experimental

"This series of films, each extraordinarily unique from every other (except 0 + 10 going together), is inspired and governed by strata of the mind's moving-visual-thinking different from that of ROMAN NUMERALS series... or perhaps one should say that the ARABIC NUMERALS come to fruition thru some tree-of-nerves separate from that which gave birth to the ROMANS (as it is physiologically deceptive to think of thought as existing in 'layers'). The ARABICS range in length from approximately 5 min. to 35 min. and may be projected at 24 f. p. s. as well as 18 f. p. s. although the latter speed seems preferable for starts. I think each film's integrity of rhythm would allow viewing at a greater variety of speeds, were there 16mm projectors to permit that exercise. So far as I can tell, they defy verbal interpretation (even more than their ROMAN equivalents) and would, thus, seem to be closer to music than any previous work given me to do; but if that be true, it is (as composer James Tenney put it to me) that they relate to that relatively small area of musical composition which resists song and dance and exists more purely in terms of sound events in Time/Space. Finally, then, the inspiration of all those modern (and a few ancient) composers I've most loved since my teens overwhelms the easier, and comfortably lovely, habits of jig and do-re-mi- AND creates a visual correlative of music's eventuality--i. e. each ARABIC is formed by the intrinsic grammar of the most inner (perhaps pre-natal) structure of thought itself."

Dress Rehearsal and Karola 2 (1980) 16mm, color, 16.25 min

Genre: Experimental

DRESS REHEARSAL and KAROLA 2 were shot simultaneously and at the same New York location. The two film also go together in that they were both made with Karola Gramann. Her way of dealing with clothes and jewelry, her specific talent of using whatever she wears or touches as a means of self-expression informs the images of both works. But although they were editing out of the same material, even using identical footage now and then, they differ considerably in structure and pace. It is important to see that the films do not attempt to unfold an argument: they are not a statement on any particular feminist issue. What we tried to do while shooting was to concentrate on our own visual pleasure rather than work in opposition to existing stereotypes. The fact that our tastes and needs did not entirely correspond added an element of communicative tension between us. It also added a slight note of incongruity: Karola's creative narcissism and ironic resourcefulness becomes to me a metaphor for all kinds of mental and actual activities.

Deep in the woods on a bright summer day we see Neil Welliver paint a small study of sunlight filtering over rocks and ferns through leaves of birches reflected in a quiet pool. Later in his barn-studio he translates the study into an 8 by 8 foot painting. He paints nature doing her own thing, not only in summer but spring, fall and winter as well. He lives in a rambling farmhouse with a large vegetable garden, his electricity supplied by windmills. He talks about landscape painting, the earlier kind and the kind he is doing.

Ray Unit explodes a smoke bomb at a famous war monument, minutes before the annual commemoration celebrations. This act of individual violence mobilizes the State's massive surveillance system. We observe, as it pursues and reconstructs the course of Unit's subsequent actions. "AGAINST THE GRAIN achieves a potent immediacy -- it's like a cross between Newsreel's AMERICA 1969, Godard's NUMERO DEUX, and B-movies' THE OFFENDERS -- with a jolting style that keeps you working and thinking throughout... My point is that it's not utopian to imagine that movies on Nicaragua could be made with the formal energy and moment-to-moment unpredictability of AGAINST THE GRAIN." -- J. Hoberman, THE VILLAGE VOICE, February, 1981. "Using non-actors and volatile material, including Vietnam newsreels and images of bomb-making, Burns' disjointed style exacerbates the dilemma of taking individualistic political action." -- Renee Shafransky, THE VILLAGER. "AGAINST THE GRAIN is a film full of humor and horror, wrenching the audience this way and that with its fractured use of sound and image. It explores its own limitations as a political film and some people will find it pretentious for doing so. For me, the film's critical ambivalence about the posture of the political artist in a culture which has little place for such a creature is one of the most convincing statements in an impressive and exciting piece of work." -- Meaghan Morris, The SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.

Twin-screen, dual-projection film. Here the image is re-framed and masked by an architectural 'system' -- the columns of the rotunda -- which is interpolated between camera and landscape. Relations between indeterminacy -- what is framed/masked -- and pattern -- arbitrary camera movement and editing systems -- is further multiplied by the play between the two screens.

Two projectors with matching lenses and light outputs should be used. Images should be of equal size and arranged side by side -- edges touching but not overlapping. Sound track is on the color print which should be shown on the left. Prints should be synchronised at the head of the leaders which should be shown and the projectors started simultaneously -- no further synchronisation is necessary. -JDS

A tree is cut, wood becomes lumber, scraps become bowls. Straightforward images on the surface, but as the film evolves and its form becomes visible, this becomes an exploration of process and transformation.

Empty Suitcases (1980) 16mm, color, 48.75 min

Genre: Experimental

... is a narrative derived from film's own material and my concern for exploring issues of representation and identification in cinema. The film presents fragments of a woman's life--her work (as a photographer), her friendship and relationships--in short, her economic, sexual,and artistic struggles. By deconstructing the fragments of text, speech, music and picture, the film forces focus on the workings of narrative, as well as on the narrative itself. Central to EMPTY SUITCASES is women's inability to place and define themselfs in laguage and politics, the location of radical struggle. This displacement leads to a definition of woman as other, and reveals problems of unresolved sexual relations, difference, and violence,--B. G. Her most successful sequences--a militant 'new wave' fashion show in which models photograph themselves, an expressionless white woman lipsynching alog to Billie Holliday, a scene where the filmmaker relates a dream only to be drowned out by Talking Heads singing 'PSycho Killer'--all criticize conventional modes of representation, with particular attention to what current academic jargon calls 'the imaging of woman.'"--J.

IT'S AN OKAY LIFE is an animated speculation on the quality of life in the 21st Century. It follows the key events in the life of an anonymous man born in 20000 as if he were reading from his diary: education by video monitors, early professional life in 'Communiacation Spaces', cloning, computer crime and rehabilitation therapy 'life' choices at age 95: freezing or self-termination. Primarily a whimsical fantasy IT'S AN OKAY LIFE also contains some disturbing truths about our lives today.--G. G.

It Happened In Sarasota (1980) 16mm, color, 19 min

Genre: Experimental

Filmed about six or seven years ago but edited and given a narration and music in 1979. As the voice-over explains, it is a film showing friends of mine practicing some acts at their home in Sarasota. The Chapmans -- Sarah and Danny were with the Ringling show when I met them -- Danny's daughter by his first wife, also a circus acrobat -- a glowering sub-teenager who developed in that startling way that women do, from a rat to a gorgeous, mysterious female. I guess that's what happened in Sarasota.

Carabosse (1980) 16mm, color, 3.5 min

Genre: Animation, Experimental

Keywords: Music

Animation, also of a new order in the recent series of short works. Mostly on black space, the figures in blue perform a very compact and jewel-like opera in surreal form, again to Satie's piano music. Ideally, the film should be projected on a 30" wide white card sitting on a music stand, center stage of a large auditorium or music hall, with sound from the projector piped into the big speaker system. The film is most effective this way, but can be shown normal-size also.

Finds of the Fortenight (1980) 16mm, color, 8.5 min

Genre: Animation

Keywords: Art & Artists

This is a very different animation. A series of surreal titles are rapidly alternated with the cut-out animation movements. The titles are often simple and the words and images combine easily into an eerie flickering superimposition. But I also was interested in pressing this technique to the limit of informational overload. Sometimes the eye is lost in the flashing barrage of words and pictures. Sound would have been too much, so I left it silent. The titles are by collage artist and painter, Jess Collins.

Stagefright (1980) 16mm, color, 74 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media, Literature & Theater

An essay-film on language and theater, on human communication -- intellectual in content, but purely poetic in terms of form: image, sound, language, cinema. STAGEFRIGHT, with the exception of one shot, was all filmed in a small puppet theater space, actors against black. "The key questions (of alternative cinema) were posed by Jon Jost's superb STAGEFRIGHT -- a dramatic meditation on cinema, theater, performance and politics which was too complex and too rich for one screening to be satisfactory. The ending gave the most devastating example I have ever seen to cinema's power to jolt and audience out of its complacency. Extraordinary!" -- Meaghan Morris, Sydney Financial Times "... One of the most powerful and shocking eruptions of violence I've ever seen in a film. Like the killed rabbit in LAST CHANTS, it both gratifies our desires for meaning and action and shows the resultant blood on one's hands in the process. As long as Jost goes on making more films just as truthful, I don't expect him to win any popularity contests." -- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Film Comment Festivals: London, Sydney, Melbourne

Dream-Work (1980) 16mm, color & b/w, 41.25 min

Based on six dreams and their analyses from Sigmund Freud's THE INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS, DREAM-WORK presents dreams and analyses equally as material to be worked on. By constantly shifting the register of representation--from literal illustration to widest association--and the point of view of narration--is this Freud's meaning, the dreamer's, or the filmmaker's (or mine, the viewer's)?--the film attempts to open up and to play with the way meaning is made consciously and unconsciously, culturally and individually. --J.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: environment/nature, landscape and architecture

"Based on Icelandic landscape, EARTH SAGA reveals the powerful beauty of a land formed by volcanic explosion. From steaming lava ash to moss-covered fields, the film redefines color and black and white images, superimposing abstract and surreal visions of nature. Original shooting was done in both 16mm and Super 8mm enabling the filmmaker to alter the inherent texture of the compositions through optical printing techniques of extending sequences, re-framing and superimposing. The resulting footage forms new flowing and rhythmic patterns in an illusionistic translation of landscape. The film is to be preceded by the reading of the poem 'Earth Saga' which was written at the time of the shooting. A copy is enclosed with the film." - RS

"A visually compelling film, one a viewer can move along with and pile up experiences through rhythmic progression--sense of perceptual substance/ I enjoyed your poem and loved your film. I am intrigued by the idea of using the two arets in this kind of combination./ Beautiful, abstract film... Wonderful camera motion... Incredible soundtrack." - Judges' comments, 1981 Athens International Film Festival

Presents (1980) 16mm, DVD PAL, color, 98 min

Genre: Experimental

"The apparent vertical scratch in celluloid that opens PRESENTS literally opens into a film within the film. When its figure awakens into a woman in a 'real' set, the slapstick satire of structural film begins . Snow pushes us into acceptance of present moments of vision, but the single drumbeat that coincides with each edit announces each moment of life's irreversible disappearance." -- Philip Monk, Art Express
"PRESENTS is a major work, even when measured by the standards of Snow's most impressive achievements. The title is a complex, provocatively ambiguous pun. The first section is a play based on the slipping and colliding senses of the word 'presents,' its homonyms, synonyms, and related concepts .... In the last section, assisted by the drum beat accenting each cut, the editing insists on the separateness of each shot and by doing so it constructs a vast inventory of different things and events. This extraordinary concluding montage sequence poses the most concerted and comprehensive challenge to the discourse of presen(ts)(ce) mounted by the film." -- Stuart Liebman, Millennium Film Journal

House by the River, A: The Wrong Shape (1980) 16mm, black and white, 34 min

Genre: Experimental

the film is about the history of the family as a social institution. Various cinematic forms are appropriated by the film as a means of displacing and questioning the viewer/listener's knowledge and experience of subjectivity. The sound tack develops a materialist history of the family unit beginning in feudal Europe and delivered in th ewords of a young student giving a book report to his classmates. The voice of this student, however, wavers between the authorial voice of the educational film and the hesitant voice of the student; between the pregnant pauses of a nervous young man and the stunbling of a 'bad' actor. The image track alternates between subjective and descriptive camera positions, focusing on contemporary domestic and scholastic 'scenes'. The audience is divided between these contradictory practices and positions in a film which refuses to close in on itself or to offer a closed position outside of itself" D.W.
