Songs: 8mm Films by Stan Brakhage and Book Sale

February 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Out of print for over 40 years, Stan Brakhage’s landmark Metaphors on Vision has been republished by Anthology Film Archives and Light Industry. To celebrate the re-release of this critical text by one of avant-garde cinema’s most influential figures, we will be screening a selection of rare 8mm films from Brakhage’s Song Series. Thomas Beard, a founder and director of Light Industry and a Programmer at Large for the Film Society of Lincoln Center, will talk about the effort to re-publish Metaphors on Vision, and a limited number of copies will be available for purchase through the VSW bookstore.
$5/free to VSW Members

Presented in partnership with the Dryden Theater at the George Eastman Museum
Please note: The Dryden Theater will be screening a selection of Brakhage films on Thursday, February 15th at 7:30 pm.

The VSW Film Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
