Robert Beavers in person!
Co-presented by REDCAT and Los Angeles Filmforum
Robert Beavers is a master of 16mm personal filmmaking whose films are landmarks of independent cinema. Following his magnum opus 18-film cycle, My Hand Outstretched to the Winged Distance and Sightless Measure, Beavers released several works that are considered among the great films of recent decades. Beavers focus is on intimate spaces and how they reflect qualities of human character and life. His art is unsurpassed in its sensitivity to seemingly ordinary details, the astonishingly sensual sound and imagery, and its deep grounding in the classical arts. Tonight's program will feature two of Beavers' most celebrated films, including the Los Angeles premiere of the groundbreaking From the Notebook of... (1971/1998, 16mm) and the mid-career masterpiece The Stoas (1991-97, 16mm).
