55th San Francisco International Film Festival @ BAM/PFA

Saturday, April 21, 2012
6:15 p.m. Blink of an Eye

In Person/Filmmaker Jerome Hiler and composer Gregory Scharpen


A storybook, medieval illuminations and details of the external world are lovingly observed in five recent experimental films that explore the nature of things, the way we think and the possibilities of image making. In the space between one image and the next, we leap to conclusions, link the unexpected and deepen our understanding. Blink, and we miss a moment of beauty.
