night light and leaping

"Bird calls, a forest muffled with snow, the soughing of willows, the flutter of wings. A reverie wrapped in fur." - Images Festival

glow in the dark (january-june)
USA | 2002 | 6 min | 16mm

Radiators clang while spheres and cypridina phosphoresce. A rubber ball held up to light becomes a snowy crystal. Home science experiments and other attempts to see with the camera in the dark.

come wishes be horses
USA | 2016 | 8 min | 16mm

Audio from a birdwatching walk is woven with images inspired by W.H. Auden's sentiment that it seems "only proper that words/Should be withheld from vegetables and birds."

blue mantle
USA | 2010 | 34 min | 16mm

Shot along the Massachusetts coast, blue mantle combines historical accounts of ocean travel and disaster with images of a vast, roiling expanse. An ode to the sea and meditation on humanity's attempts to conquer the deep and the unknown. 

A post-screening Q&A will follow / admission is free.

This event is sponsored by the Phil Student Success Grant provided by University of Iowa Office of the President.
