Canyon Cinema 50: Continuum
Program Four: CONTINUUM is named for Dominic Angerames silent and exquisitely filmed black and white 1987 city portrait. The program also features Bay Area filmmaker Karen Holmes underappreciated late 1970s landscape and performance film, Saving the Proof; Los Angeles effects artist and filmmaker Pat ONeills 1973 masterpiece Down Wind; Gunvor Nelsons My Name is Oona, one of the canonical works of the American avant-garde; and two works from the mid-2000s: Tomonari Nishikawas frenetic single-frame city portrait, Market Street, and animator Janie Geisers Terrace 49. The program is bookended with Valentin De Las Sierras and Mujer De Milfuegos, films by Canyon Cinema founders Bruce Baillie and Chick Strand that continue to resonate as vital, adventurous film art. Total running time: 85 minutes

In the Canyon Cinema 50 project, four 16mm programs, composed of 43 films drawn from Canyons circulating collection of more than 3,400 titles, will provide an opportunity audiences to encounter some of the defining works of American avant-garde cinema as they were meant to be seen, while also recuperating forgotten voices and casting a contemporary eye on Canyons collection. Many of the films in the tour are recent restorations and new prints. The programs have been curated by David Dinnell. As a component of the Canyon Cinema 50 project, the touring program is meant not only to celebrate Canyons history but also to point the way towards the organizations continued relevance as both a purveyor of and advocate for artist-made cinema, seeding the next generation of what founding filmmaker Bruce Baillie described as a federation of willing devotees of the magic lantern muse.
