Cascadia (Or Bad Times Never Happened)
CASCADIA [OR BAD TIMES NEVER HAPPENED]: Films of Beydler, Snider, Hindle, Findley, Baillie, Brakhage and Rimmer (California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia)

September 27 at 3PM
(approx. 75 min)

Introduced by Jonathan Marlow / post-screening discussion with Bruce Baillie and Janice Findley (schedules permitting)

An eclectic program of so-called "avant-garde" short films structured entirely around peculiar limitations: all films made along the Cascadia subduction zone (except for the first, due south but heading north); all films shot in 16mm and presented in the same format; all films selected from the Canyon Cinema collection, all films made prior to 2000. Starting with Gary Beydler's rarely-seen (yet remarkable) Pasadena Freeway Stills, we progress northward with Greta Snider's travelogue Portland and the award-winning Billabong by Will Hindle. Then further north to Janice Findley's pixilated triptych Triple-time and Canyon co-founder Bruce Baillie's extraordinary Roslyn Romance. Evermore to the north for whale-watching near Vancouver Island with Stan Brakhage's Moilsome Toilsome and, last but not least, the view from the window in David Rimmer's Canadian Pacific.
