Part of Fall 1989
Longtime filmmaker and anti-censorship activist John Porter presents a retrospective show drawn from his over two hundred super-8 films spanning the last fifteen years. Porter has been acclaimed for the intricate and mesmerizing techniques he uses to engage the low-tech ‘home-movie’ format of super-8, and for his ironic, humorous approach to documenting unadorned, everyday aspects of life. Tonight’s screening will offer a representative sampling of past work (including projection/performance by the filmmaker, e.g. the triple-screen Daily Double Dick Van Dykes) and new films completed especially for this event.
