Nathaniel Dorsky Series Pass
Floating Energy: The Films of Nathaniel Dorsky
APRIL 10 11, WEDNESDAYTHURSDAY AT 8PM
Director in Attendance!
Shooting almost exclusively in 16mm and found with a Bolex by his side, Nathaniel Dorsky is one of a rare breed of filmmakers whose work can be classified as essential viewing. Dorsky creates immersive, rhythmical worlds with his visually handsome films, as he isolates an elemental profundity in his medium. Always without sound and grounded in a penetrating understanding of film form, Dorsky renders the prosaic a poetic experience, drawing attention to vitality in the ordinary. While delivering emotionally meditative work, Dorsky edits nature, light, and figure to create an utterly sensual cinema. Join us for two evenings of Mr. Dorsky's films, curated by the artist himself.
"If we do relinquish control, we suddenly see a hidden world, one that has existed all along right in front of us. In a flash, the uncanny presence of the poetic and vibrant world, ripe with mystery, stands before us." Nathaniel Dorsky, Devotional Cinema
"There is the world that we see, and then there is the world that artists like Mr. Dorsky see and generously share." Manohla Dargis, New York Times
