Nathaniel Dorsky’s films “create a film form which, in itself, has all the qualities of being human: tenderness, observation, fear, curiosity, the sense of stepping into the world, sudden murky disruptions and undercurrents, expansion, pulling back, contraction, relaxation, sublime revelation.” This program includes his three most recent films, Prelude (2015), Autumn (2016), and Coda (a work-in-progress). Prelude embodies the pleasure of photographing and editing film at its most tentative of times, beholding the soulful beauty and tenderness of cinema, its depths and joys as human experience. Autumn, photographed during the last months of the 2015 drought, is a stately, but intimate, seasonal tome, a celebration of the poignancy and mystery of our later years. Director Nathaniel Dorsky is scheduled to be present. (16mm Presentation)
