Flaherty NYC, Monday, November 10th,, 7:30 pm, Anthology Film Archives
The Flaherty follows up the October launch of its new monthly screening series, Flaherty NYC, with another program on Monday November 10, 7:30pm, at Anthology Film Archives.
The program will feature short works from German-Japanese filmmaker Sylvia Schedelbauer, whose films negotiate the space between broader historical narratives and personal, psychological realms mainly through poetic manipulations of found and archival footage, and Canadian-Japanese filmmaker Alison Kobayashi, who plays the part of every character in her rich narratives inspired by found objects that contain traces of private experiences. Alison Kobayashi will participate in a post-screening discussion moderated by Pamela Cohn. (pictured above: Dan Carter)
Filmmaker Magazine says Sylvia Schedelbauer and Alison Kobayashi "gave the seminar energy and hope. Refusing boundaries like intellectual and populist and the staid traditions and genres of prior generations, their works pointed toward a new kind of filmmaking."
Films and videos to be screened:
· Remote Intimacy (Sylvia Schedelbauer, 2007/8, 14 min., USA) A meditation on dreams, nightmares, desire and the im/possibility of belonging.
· From Alex to Alex (Alison Kobayashi, 2006, 6 min., Canada) Kobayashi plays the roles of two teenage boys in this exploration of performance, gender, and desire.
· Memories (Sylvia Schedelbauer, 2004, 19 min., Germany) A complicated family lineage shapes this filmmaker's construction of identity, memory and history.
· Dan Carter (Alison Kobayashi, 2006, 15 min., Canada) The life of an unseen man is revealed through his found answering machine messages.
