Michael Snow at PMA

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is having a film series of Michael Snow's work, starting tonight:

The Films of Michael Snow: Program A
Wavelength (1966–67); Standard Time (1967–68, with Joyce Wieland); and One Second in Montreal (1969)
By exploring individual cinematic techniques, such as camera zooms and pans, these films reveal Michael Snow’s interest in how films affect our perception of time and space.

Wednesday, February 5, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Friday, February 21, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

The Films of Michael Snow: Program B
See You Later (Au Revoir) (1990); and To Lavoisier, Who Died in the Reign of Terror (1991)
Michael Snow appears in two films produced in 1990s, both of which are concerned with breaking down basic ideas we hold about cinema, such as the physical properties of celluloid and Hollywood’s narrative drive, to push film towards greater abstraction.

Friday, February 7, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday, February 19, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

The Films of Michael Snow: Program C
Reverberlin (2006) 
Incorporating concert footage of the free improvisational ensemble CCMC (Paul Dutton, John Oswald, Michael Snow), Reverberlin weaves together images and sounds from performances that have taken place across the globe.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014
6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Films works screened on 16mm at the Van Pelt Auditorium. (free tickets required, presumably in addition to admission). This film program is guest-curated by filmmaker and writer J. Louise Makary.
