Screening

Saul Levine - 8mm films

screening by artist
Fri 26.11. - 20:00

Saul Levine, a legend of small gauge filmmaking, has taught at the Massachusetts College of Art for over 30 years, influencing several generations of filmmakers, and programs the longstanding Mass Art Film Society. Since 1964, he has made over 80 films and videos. Levine’s work is noted for its incorporation of splice marks, percussive editing, unconstrained camera movements and spontaneous formal accidents. This distinctive style, informed by a background in the blues, poetry, and radical politics, produces “exquisitely kinetic,” and often very beautiful cinematic experiences. His work is included in the recently released amazing box set, Treasures from the Archives IV: American Avant-Garde Film, 1947-1986.
