Ciné Salon’s Spring 2018 will address a selection of outstanding visionary movies important to the history of the medium that for a variety of reasons are little seen. It is hoped our efforts will renew appreciation in these moving image gems.
In 1951, Stan Brakhage had a nervous breakdown during his freshman year and left Dartmouth to pursue creative filmmaking, something he referred to as “metaphors on vision.” He returned March 18, 1955 to show his early works and later to screen the 16mm epic, Dog Star Man, in 1964 and the 8mm feature, 23rd Psalm Branch, in 1967. Tonight, we will attempt to re-create musician Jim Tenny’s original music score for Unglassed Windows Cast a Terrible Reflection, and Nora Jacobson will present her personal 8mm vintage print of 23rd Psalm Branch in original format.
FILMS: Unglassed Windows Cast a Terrible Reflection (1953); Dog Star Man, Part Four (1964); 23rd Psalm Branch (1967), and other films TBA. Total running time: 130 minute
