AMAZING HANDMADE FILMS FROM AUSTRALIA
Filmmaker Richard Tuohy in person
Richard Tuohy’s handcrafted 16mm films use captivating visual manipulations to sculpt an activated and reanimated reality which collectively represent a distinctively live cinematic experience. More visual then cerebral, these pictures move, and with an energy unique to film. While covering a range of techniques, strategies and visual themes, they each share the same tenacious unfolding of a set of abstract possibilities from out of singular visual ideas. This program presents eight hand-processed and DIY printed 16mm film works from the Tuohy’s recent output. The films, though diverse, are all highly abstract and tightly structured and share a fascination with the visual possibilities of basic traditional film technology.
