Film Notes

The latest segment of THE IMPROBABLE MADE POSSIBLE, a roaming series showcasing contemporary avant-garde cinema, FAREWELL FROM A DYING STAR attempts to make cinematic sense of direct observation and its wayfaring counterpart, speculative fiction.

This program marvels at mesmeric outlooks on place – as viewed by Chris Lynn in Baoying, China; Margaret Rorison in Baltimore, Maryland; and Brendan and Jeremy Smyth in Bali, Indonesia – and embraces the enigmatic materiality of celluloid as manifested in Marika Borgeson’s sun print, Josh Lewis’s vertical exposures, John Price’s outdated film stocks, and Robert Schaller’s handmade pinhole apparatus.

20th century histories are also affected in THE HANDEYE (BONE GHOSTS), which stages a very special séance between Robert Musil and Frans Anton Mesmer, and in PLACES WITH MEANING, which stresses a reverberating representation of the Microsoft font, Webdings.

Resonating throughout this program are the echo, as evoked by Emily Richardson, “that reflects the unheard elements present in the earth’s atmosphere,” and the projection, in the words of Toby Tatum, “of an improbable realm, stitched together from a kit of warring elements into a fantastic whole.”

Curated by Lorenzo Gattorna, THE IMPROBABLE MADE POSSIBLE has previously made stops at Spectacle Theater, UnionDocs and Antimatter [Media Art].

1. A Distant Horizon by Ryan Marino
Remote landscapes contain fragments of strata and sediment suggesting an existence marked by time not man. A vibrant sun illuminates the contours of the land providing a natural show of light and shadow play. “We are lost between the abyss within us and the boundless horizons outside us.” – Robert Smithson

2.Ships passing on the Huangpu River (Chris H Lynn, 2013)
Video/Super 8 film transferred to DV|color/b&w|sound| 7:22
