Southern Lights: Films by Pablo Marin
Pablo Marin In Person
A prominent figure in the burgeoning filmmaking scene of Argentina, Pablo Marin appears in person from Buenos Aires to present a screening of his personal, lyrical Super-8 films, whichin the traditions of Narcisa Hirsch, Claudio Caldini and Marie Louise Alemannbring "a structural/formal concern into the realm of autobiographical/intimate cinema" and demonstrate a dazzling proficiency at in-camera composition superimposition. From Marin's recent statement from the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (where he recently completed a residency): "During the last few years, I have discovered in Super 8mm a world of possibilities very unique and profound. By way of pushing the format and camera to its mechanical limits I've found that Super 8mm can be turned into a medium surprisingly flexible and infinite in terms of shooting and (especially) in-camera editing. It is certainly an art form that fits what poet Eileen Myles once labeled as "pathetic technologies": tools perhaps too simple, obsolete and/or outdated but through which it is possible, nonetheless, to explore the limits of the imaginable."
Films to screen include RESISTFILM, a complex medley of elaborate superimposed homages to early avant-garde landmarks and wild landscapes of the 21st Century; DENKBILDER, an international travelogue fusing Buenos Aires and Berlin, and other travelogues DIARIO COLORADO, CARTA AUSTRAL ("a dark map of southern introspection"); 1640, "a lightning landscape"; and other films including XOXO, 4x4 and the complete UNTITLED TRILOGY.
