Studies in Natural Magic (79 min)

Studies in Natural Magic features recent films by Saul Levine, Charlotte Pryce, and Christopher Harris; rarely screened films by Standish Lawder and Jean Sousa; sublimely filmed and acutely perceived portraits of cities, seas, skies, and landscapes by Peter Hutton, Julie Murray, Gary Beydler, Robert Fulton, and Emily Richardson; Betzy Brombergs audacious and energetic feminist punk city symphony; Degrees of Limitation, one of Scott Starks earliest films, a humorous 3-minute structuralist gem; and Portland, a mid-90s travelogue and playful Rashomon-like inquiry into the nature of truth by Greta Snider.

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.
