ETHNOGRAPHIC INNOVATORS:
Robert Gardner’s Forest of Bliss

This programs plays tribute to the recent passing of the highly influential ethnographic filmmaker, Robert Gardner. Forest of Bliss is an unsparing yet redemptive account of the poignant range of joy, religious passion and grief and that punctuates daily life in Benares, India’s most holy city. The film unfolds from one sunrise to the next without commentary, subtitles or dialogue. It is an attempt to give the viewer a wholly authentic, though greatly magnified and concentrated, sense of participation in the experiences examined by the film. Indeed, Gardner’s unique approach to documentary filmmaking places this film on the divide between ethnographic filmmaking and the more personal cinematic style whose goals are closer to poetry.

SK8 or Die & Paranoid Park

Ska8-or-dieWEYLAND

Jocko Weyland presents a selection of rad skateboarding videos with a live improv-accompaniment by shredder JLownsbury & friends. Tonight’s second act is Gus Van Sant’s underappreciated skater feature, Paranoid Park. In this film, an unsolved murder at Portland’s infamous Paranoid Park skate park brings detectives to a local high school, propelling a young skater into a moral odyssey where he must not only deal with the pain and disconnect of adolescence but the consequences of his own actions. One of the most darkly intense films of Gus Van Sant’s fascinating career.

“…the work of a player who has fully internalized old time and bluegrass and who is now reshaping them into a brand new, highly individualized form…this guy isn’t naive; he’s a master” (Justin Farrar, Strawberry Flats)

“In his work, Daniel is attracted to outsiders in the most literal sense — people who live on the outside of civilization, for whom, in Daniel’s eyes, mere survival is an act of artistic expression.” -RES Magazine
