Stan Brakhage Screening

* Saturday, January 29 - Sunday, January 30, 2000. Ontario, Canada.

Cinematheque Ontario will present a series of screening of

animator/filmmaker Stan Brakhage's work. Since 1952, Brakhage has

experimented with manipulating celluloid by directly scratching,

hand-painting, etching and collage on its surface. What makes these works

so exquisite is the precision with which they are made. Brakhage's abstract

films are rewarding viewing for anyone interested in cameraless filmmaking

and experimental animation. On Saturday at 1 pm, Cinemathque will show

Brakhage's DOG STAR MAN: PART IV, EYE MYTH, LOUD VISUAL NOISES and

COUPLING. On Saturday at 3:30 pm, the museum will present ARABIC 9, THE

EGYPTIAN SERIES, BABYLON SERIES and REEL 5. Starting off Sunday's showing

at 1 pm is CHRIST MASS SEX DANCE, followed by CHARTRES SERIES, BLACK ICE,

FIRELOOP and CRICKET REQUIEM. The series will close on Sunday at 3:30 pm

with the presentation of LAST HYMN TO THE NIGHT - NOVALIS, POLITE MADNESS

and BLUE VALUE. All screenings will be held in the Art Gallery of Ontario's

Jackman Hall. Jackman Hall Box Office opens 30 minutes prior to the first

screening of the day. All screenings restricted to individuals 18 years of

age or older (unless otherwise noted). Ticket prices are Members: CA$4.80;

Non-Members: $8.00; Student Members/Seniors: $4.25; Persons under 18 years

of age (all-ages screenings only): $4.80. For more information, consult
