      • BRAKHAGE


        from Jim Shedden / Added

        Jim Shedden's film, BRAKHAGE, explores the depth and breadth of the Stan Brakhage's genius, the exquisite splendor of his films, his magic personal charm, his aesthetic fellow travelers, and the influence his work has had on generations of other creators. While touching on significant moments in Brakhage's biography, the film celebrates Brakhage's visionary qualities, and explores the extraordinary artistic possibilities of cinema, a medium mostly known only for its commercial applications in the form of narratives, cartoons, documentaries, and advertising. BRAKHAGE combines excerpts from Brakhage's films and films of other avant-garde filmmakers (eg, George Kuchar, Jonas Mekas, Willie Varela, Bruce Elder, and others); interviews with Brakhage, his friends, family, colleagues, and critics; archival footage of Brakhage spanning the past thirty-five years; and location shooting in Boulder, Colorado and New York. BRAKHAGE is directed by Jim Shedden and produced by Alexa-Frances Shaw (who worked together on Michael Snow Up Close), and executive produced by Ron Mann (Twist, Comic Book Confidential, Imagine the Sound). An original score was composed for the film by long-time Brakhage associate and noted avant-garde composer James Tenney. "Excellent! A reverent, hagiographic, even mystical portrait of the canonical avant-gardist."—EdHalter, New York Press "Shedden samples Brakhage's greatest hits and to see the equivalent of his reel is to recognize the awesome breadth of his accomplishments."—J. Hoberman, Village Voice

Three more works from Solomon’s "In Memorium" – "Crossroad" (2005), "Rehearsals for Retirement" (2007), and "Last Days in a Lonely Place" (2008), will be screened as part of Avant Gaming in the Everson’s Hosmer auditorium on Tuesday, November 12 at 6:30pm. A reception will follow on the plaza. About the Video "Still Raining, Still Dreaming" repurposes the virtual world of the controversial “Grand Theft Auto” video game series, with its imperatives to random violence and crime, transforming Liberty City, the fictitious metropolis based on New York City in which the game is set, into a reflective space of stillness: depopulated of players, full of melancholy, longing, and moments of compelling poetic beauty.

                      This is how he would paint on film in the last several years of his life, mostly out in public, at various cafes and restaurants in downtown Boulder (before they inevitably kicked him out for one reason or another), meeting and greeting while continuing to work, having an Irish coffee, etc. Here he is working with the 35mm trailers for the feature film "Quills" that would eventually become VERY and NIGHT MULCH, two of his most unique hand-painted films (they have their own "reviews" embedded under the paint - very witty indeed). That is old friend and wonderful filmmaker, Abraham Ravett, visiting us from Hampshire College.
