A Path Seems Like a Place
Carolee, Barbara, & Gunvor
RT: 08:00 Lynne Sachs, 2018
From 2015 to 2017, Lynne Sachs visited with Carolee Schneemann, Barbara Hammer, and Gunvor Nelson, three multi-faceted artists who have embraced the moving image throughout their lives. From Carolee’s 18th Century house in the woods of Upstate New York to Barbara’s West Village studio to Gunvor’s childhood village in Sweden, Lynne shoots film with each woman in the place where she finds grounding and spark.

Draw down the sun, boil up the gold. The impulse to relieve a winter valley of permanent shadow and find precious metal in alluvial gravel are part of a long history of desire and extraction in the northern Canadian landscape. Cancan dancers, curlers, smelters, ex city officials and a curious cliff-side mirrored disc congregate to form a Yukon town portrait.

Dragons and Seraphim
RT: 14:00 Sasha Waters Freyer, 2017
Ancient flowers and animal desire. The past rises up – a mirage, but I can't bury it deep enough. Fever season of magic, madness: adolescence. It's their turn now, our willing sacrifice. "dragons & seraphim" fuses original film footage of three generations of family shot on a handcranked Bolex camera, with 16mm nature films and the home movies of strangers that optically reprinted frame by frame. Sound design by Stephen Vitiello; poem "Childless" by Michael Morse.

A Path Seems Like A Place
RT: 19:20 Sylvia Herbold, 2017
Archival images of women and nature are intercut with recent footage of my sisters. This mixture is simultaneously intimate and unfamiliar. A Path Seems like a Place plays with the line between performance and documentary.
