Some recent film screenings
There have been a lot of opportunities to screen small-gauge films lately. Temple Bar Galleries have hosted two such events this month.
Maximilian Le Cain – Image Turned Down (Super 8mm)
This film has long stretchs of leader and black, cutting to rapid montages of heavily-treated and untreated film – challenging to show!
And David Gatten’s BASE-PLUS-FOG, What The Water Said, Shrimp Boat Log and The Great Art of Knowing (16mm). These were shown on a rented projector from Film Base. I was assistant projectionist on this one, threading the film and loading the reels. Just as well, as the projector was tempermental for the first few minutes.
