Films by Nathaniel Dorsky: How Delicately the Light Imbues our Fleeting Life

Join us Thursday November 12th at 7:30pm for a night of silent 16mm screenings of Nathaniel Dorsky‘s most recent work, presented in association with the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.  Screenings will be repeated Friday Nov. 13th and through the weekend; the filmmaker will be in attendance for all screenings.

Screening Thursday, November 12:
 (2013): Summer in San Francisco is a dry and rainless season. The film, Summer, although photographed during this period of time, is not so much a description of summer, as it is a cinematic response to that world of our being.
December (2014): December was photographed during this often turbulent month and edited soon after. It has a purity of form which I find quite rewarding.
February (2014, Bay Area premiere): …photographed during the first weeks of early spring in San Francisco. For me there is a haunted sense of restlessness in its form, some desire for a new freedom, a fresh sense of cinema.
Avraham (2014, Bay Area premiere): In most of my films I have had the burden of adding a title afterwards. Sometimes the word or words would come automatically, but more often with great difficulty. In the case ofAvraham, the title came first. It was not only the film’s inspiration but the very thing that determined every shot and every cut.
