Event Description

Don’t miss out as the High and Film Love kick off a retrospective series with selections chosen by Film Love curator, Andy Ditzler, from the more than 150 programs he has shown over the past 16 years.

In January we begin with:

Cotillion, The Midnight Party, The Children’s Party (Lawrence Jordan and Joseph Cornell, 1940s/1968), 16mm, 25 mins.
Rose Hobart (Joseph Cornell, 1936), 16mm converted to digital, 20 mins.
The Aviary (Joseph Cornell and Rudolph Burckhardt, ca. 1954), 16mm, 5 mins.
(Joseph Cornell and Rudolph Burckhardt, ca. 1957), 16mm, 7 mins.
A Fable for Fountains (Joseph Cornell and Rudolph Burckhardt, ca. 1954), 16mm, 6 mins.
Angel (Joseph Cornell and Rudolph Burckhardt, ca. 1957), 16mm, 3 mins.
Centuries of June (Joseph Cornell and Stan Brakhage, 1955), 16mm, 10 mins.

The Cinema of Joseph Cornell is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to great but rarely screened films, especially important works unavailable on consumer video. Through public screenings and events, Film Love preserves the communal viewing experience, provides space for the discussion of film as art, explores diverse forms of projection and viewing, and illuminates connections between the moving image and other art forms. Film Love is curated by Andy Ditzler.
