New on 16mm: Drifter (1999-2010) by Timoleon Wilkins

The suggestive ballad of a lone wanderer. Fourteen years in the making, DRIFTER is an atmospheric anthology of places, faces and the sublime gifts of Kodachrome and a Bolex camera.

“Simply honest, personal work of art. Escritura del alma.”
-Bruce Baillie

“There is a transcendental quality to Wilkins’ films. He often reveals everyday moments that hint at eternity. His films include casual portraits, layered urban and nature images and sudden kinetic bursts of movement or color. He discovers abstractions found in macro-shots of nature, and the mysterious evanescent play of light and color that hint at a higher meaning.”
-Robin Menken, Cinema Without Borders
