This program of works from San Francisco experimental-film distributor Canyon Cinema, one of DIM’s favourite partners, is curated by David Dinnell, visiting faculty at CalArts and former program director at the Ann Arbor Film Festival, and features recent films by Saul Levine, Charlotte Pryce, and Christopher Harris; rarely-screened films by Standish Lawder and Jean Sousa; sublimely shot and acutely perceived portraits of cities, seas, skies, and landscapes by Peter Hutton, Julie Murray, Gary Beydler, Robert Fulton, and Emily Richardson; an audacious, energetic feminist punk city symphony by Betzy Bromberg; Degrees of Limitation, one of Scott Stark’s earliest films, a humorous 3‑minute structuralist gem; and Portland, a mid-90s travelogue and playful Rashomon-like inquiry into the nature of truth by Greta Snider. And, because we’re celebrating Canyon’s 50th, we’ll also be showing July 71 in San Francisco, Living at Beach Street, Working at Canyon Cinema, Swimming in the Valley of the Moon, a diary film by Hutton.
