A Report on the Hundred Years Gallery Screening on 5/4/13

Last Saturday (5/4/13) the Zone collective put together an impressive list of films to screen at the Hundred Years Gallery in London. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend, but author, filmmaker,  and musician Robert Robertson was.  Here is a wonderful blog post about the event. Looking forward to Mr. Robertson’s new book in the near future. Browse his blog and certainly check out his first book Eisenstein and the Audiovisual

Lynlee’s Beauty was Everywhere on Haze’s recent Sound Interpretation Series: Virginia Woolf

Lynlee has contributed a new track entitled Beauty was Everywhere for Haze’s Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Virginia Woolf. This track consists of field recordings and a superb, rich reading by Una herself . Both of us are great admires of Woolf, so hopefully the track will inspire a few new readers to seek Woolf out, or motivate some old readers to dust off their copies of Mrs Dalloway . Here is a link to the Haze compilation. More Lynlee soon.

The Old Greenbelt theatre has a chance to be preserved as a local gem-Here is the link to vote-
This is an incredible cinema house and also instrumental to the Utopia Film Festival. Regretfully,these landmarks are vanishing all over America, so let’s try to save a few while we still have the opportunity. I filmed this image last year during the Utopia Film Festival.

People’s Park Reverie screened at the Hundred Years Gallery in London tomorrow night! 5/4/13

shanghai still for film


I am really pleased to announce that People’s Park Reverie, which is part of my Summer Trilogy, will be screened tomorrow night at the Hundred years Gallery in London. The event is curated by the Zone collective, which is based in Brighton. Here is a description,
“Chris H. Lynn’s three short films, ‘A Trilogy of Summer’ (2010, 2012) were filmed in China: in Nanjing and in Shanghai. ‘Morning Fisherman’ is a quiet moment set by a lake. This film features the magic of the mists which are often shown in the Chinese landscape painting tradition. ‘Afternoon Rain in Nanjing’ is more urban: here the natural element is a monsoon rainstorm. The third film, ‘People’s Park Reverie’, continues Lynn’s theme of water, with its rhythmic reflections and musical colours, in an urban park in Shanghai”. Here is a link to the program. If you are in London, check it out-The program looks great! Thanks to the Zone Collective and Robert Robertson.
