August events — A Salon with Mary Helena Clark

August 5 // 7:30 PM (doors 7:00) // 16 Sherman
A Salon with Mary Helena Clark

Canyon Cinema’s long-running Salon series continues this week with one of our favorite working filmmakers, Mary Helena Clark. She will be joining us at 16 Sherman to present some of her outtakes, real and imagined, alongside work from the Canyon Cinema collection. Structured around Orpheus (outtakes), her 2012 reworking of Cocteau’s Orphée, and a selection material excised from her own recent projects, the program will also include films by Michael Snow, Dorothy Wiley, Joyce Wieland, and others in an evening that promises “relationships by contiguity, resonances, and the connection that becomes the thing itself.”

Free admission. Doors open at 7:00, films begin at 7:30. Show up early to get a seat.

Program includes:
Breathing, Robert Breer (1963)
Standard Time, Michael Snow (1968)
Letters, Dorothy Wiley (1972)
Solidarity, Joyce Wieland (1973)
Tziporah, Abraham Ravett (2008)
Orpheus (outtakes), Mary Helena Clark (2012)
+ outtakes from Mary Helena Clark’s recent film rolls

More Canyon Cinema 50 events are being added all the time. On August 12, we are teaming up with Kadist Art Foundation to present a program at Canyon Cinema’s lovely Bayview headquarters as a part of its What We Know That We Don’t Know exhibition. Seating is extremely limited. Details to be announced on canyoncinema50.org
