Please note: These screenings were originally scheduled for Saturday, January 23, and will now be shown as part of a combined program.

Andrew Noren Memorial Screening: The Lighted Field
Dir. Andrew Noren. U.S., 1987, 59 mins. 16mm. “I’m a light thief and a shadow bandit,” said the late filmmaker Andrew Noren, who died in 2015. “The lovers, light and shadow, and their offspring space and time are my themes, working with their particularities is my passion and delight.” A major yet neglected figure in American avant-garde filmmaking, one of his masterworks, The Lighted Field combines shimmering diaristic footage with flashes of archival footage.
