Interludes: New and Recent Films by Nathaniel Dorsky

Presented by San Francisco Cinematheque   |  

January 23, 2020, 7:30 PM

An active filmmaker since childhood, Nathaniel Dorsky is one of the world’s most celebrated creators of personal cinema, continuously articulating an aesthetic which, in his words, strives toward “all the qualities of being human: tenderness, observation, fear, relaxation, the sense of stepping into the world and pulling back, expansion, contraction, changing, softening, tenderness of heart.” In this rich body of work, Dorsky evokes silent, luminous spiritualities abiding in the world’s objects and surfaces and suggests divinity in the everyday. Cinematheque commences its 2020 exhibition season with a screening of new and recent works by the master filmmaker, including The Dreamer (2016), Calyx (2018), Colophon (for the Arboretum Cycle) (2018), Apricity (2019) and the *world premiere* of Interlude (2019).
