This screening is presented in collaboration with the Altered Esthetics Film Festival.
In July, Steve Polta will be joining us from the San Francisco Cinematheque to present his organization’s annual touring program of experimental film, CROSSROADS.
Founded by filmmaker Bruce Baillie in 1961, San Francisco Cinematheque is a premier exhibitor of avant-garde/experimental and personally expressive filmmaking. Each year since 2010 Cinematheque presents CROSSROADS, an annual film festival celebrating recent artist-made film, video and performance cinema. Visiting from San Francisco, Cinematheque’s Artistic Director Steve Polta appears in person to present and discuss a program from CROSSROADS 2016. The program thank your body for its strength and power concerns delirium, danger and risk; physical, emotional and sexual intimacy; the state of bodies on screen, merging and in collision; boundaries asserted, transgressed and violated.
