Filmmaker Julie Perini & Signal Fire’s Amy Harwood in person!
Direct filmmaking meets environmental action in a program of films using organic and inorganic material to alter the film surface. Co-presented by Signal Fire, an organization engaging artists in our remaining wild and open spaces. This collection shows a range of effects used to intervene on the actual film exposure and processing; decay, spore hosting, compost, exposure to bioluminescent plants, processing in polluted lakes, magnetic alteration, and more. The program included work by Dorothea Braemer & Brian Milbrand, Cade Bursell, Dagie Brundert, Caryn Cline, Devon Damonte, Lori Felker, Melissa Friedling, Eva Kolcze, Robbie Land, Christine Lucy Latimer, Julie Perini, Jeremy Rendina, Ken Paul Rosenthal, Eric Stewart, and Steve Woloshen
