'At Sea' & 'Melting Ground' with filmmakers in person! [The Experiment]
One night screening of experimental films 'At Sea' and 'Melting Ground' with filmmakers Peter Hutton and Richard Garet in person for a Q&A and reception.

'At Sea'
(Dir. Peter Hutton, 2004-07, 16mm, color, silent, 60 min.)
"The momentum of more than forty thousand tons is as absolute as the darkness" (John McPhee, Looking for a Ship). Hutton's most recent filma riveting and revelatory chronicle of the birth, life, and death of a colossal container shipis unquestionably one of his most ambitious and profound. A haunting meditation on human progress, both physical and metaphorical, At Sea charts a three-year passage from twenty-first-century ship building in South Korea to primitive and dangerous ship breaking in Bangladesh, with an epic journey across the North Atlantic in between.

'Melting Ground'
(Dirs. Richard Garet and Asher Thal-Nir, 2011, 16mm on video, b&w, sound, 40 min.)
"...As if Erik Satie and Albert Pinkham Ryder had taken a helicopter ride in Alaska together in order that they might locate a cipher or secret alphabet in the clouds, the mist and the glacial moraine below. Aerial adumbrations of wilderness unfolding in time like a Chinese landscape painting from the Sixteenth Century. Topography as stand-in for the unconscious. With geology and waterfall as phantasm, a panorama of lost places flickering in the eidetic harbor of dream. Of what was and never will be again, as much in metaphor, in mind, in memory as in actual place. Who am I? Where am I going? What can I become?" - David Baker on 'Melting Ground'

Filmmakers Peter Hutton and Richard Garet in person for a Q&A's following the screenings and a reception sponsored by Sugar Hill Ale.
