Haptic Refractions: A Cameraless Evening
Thursday, May 22 at 7:30 pm - opens at 7:00 pm
at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco

Presented by SF Cinematheque in conjunction with Agitate
Curated by Irina Leimbacher and Steve Polta

A cinema based on touch, gestures of contact between the surface of
film and the world, is the basis of tonight's screening. Emulsive
transformations, both human and the earth's, palimpsests of paint and
scratchings, or traces left by light and life transform the site of
film into a new experience of sight. Films include: silt's
performance of their multiple-projector biotriptych (excerpted from
All Pieces of a River Shore), a continuation of their investigations
of film emulsion as a microcosmic peering into the earth's crust;
Fred Worden's Automatic Writing 2; Rock Ross' Psycho Porpoise;
Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof's Light Magic; Saul Levine's Light Lick (az
sent)-Only Sunshine; Karen Johannesen's Untitled; Alexis Bravos' The
World's Dry Lever; Luis Recoder's Silver Recovery; Steve Polta's A
Glimpse of Soviet Science; and Phil Solomon and Stan Brakhage's The

$7 general admission /$4 Cinematheque and Camerawork members, students, seniors
