Filmgoers are frequently encouraged to conceptualize the production of films as having singular end dates, often signified by a film’s date of release. Underground media makers, however, often work and re-work their films far beyond their initial dates completion and exhibition. This selection of short films focuses on works that have been partially destroyed, left unfinished, finished posthumously, or otherwise designed to be indeterminate in ways that trouble finite ideas of film production and release.

This program includes Pat O’Neill’s Trouble in the Image (1996), David Wojnarowicz’s A Fire in my Belly (A Work in Progress) (1986– 1987), and Helen Hill’s The Florestine Collection (2011). The 16mm print for The Florestine Collection is provided by the Harvard Film Archive. (16mm and digital presentation)
