Falling Notes Unleaving

Rental Format(s): 16mm film, 18 fps

Made almost fifty years after his debut film, Saul Levine's FALLING NOTES UNLEAVING presents the filmmaker returning to the inspiration of Stan Brakhage and the distinctive texture of Super-8 film for a tribute to fellow film artist Anne Charlotte Robertson. He shot her 2012 funeral ("I thought it important to honor her work by filming an event she could not," he wrote) amongst the wooded beauty of a Massachusetts cemetery. The film captures not just the ceremony and the gathered mourners but the rich colors of Massachusetts in the fall and the transition of day into night. The autumn colors glow like embers in the cool of the green forest and the lights of traveling cars and the city beyond dance against the darkness as Levine leaves us between the abstract and figurative. - Sean Axmaker
