Collage from Other States (2013) Paul Clipson

Please join Canyon Cinema on the evening of Monday November 9, 2015 at New Nothing Cinema for the next installment in our Salon series. This month, we’re pleased to welcome filmmaker Paul Clipson. In addition to his own recent film Other States (2013), Paul will screen a selection of some of his favorite films from the Canyon Cinema catalogue, works that influenced him and continue to generate inspiration in his practice of Super 8mm and 16mm filmmaking. After the screening, a conversation will focus on the potential narrative, visual, editing, sound and silent elements of the films.
