  • Burn

    2002. USA. Directed by Reynold Reynolds, Patrick Jolley. Reynolds and Jolley’s experimental film is an absurdist, coruscating, almost medieval vision of hell and the possibility of salvation, depicting a house in flames whose inhabitants are seemingly unperturbed. 10 min.

  • Decasia

    2002. USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. Things fall apart, but rarely with the kind of hallucinatory, violent beauty that Morrison and his brilliant composer Michael Gordon evoke in their celebrated ode to celluloid decay and man’s eternal, quixotic quest to transcend materiality, time, and space. “Decasia is that rare thing: a movie with avant-garde and universal appeal, occasioning two separate features in The New York Times. Morrison is not the first artist to take decomposing film stock as his raw material, but he plunges into this dark nitrate of the soul with contagious abandon…. The film is a fierce dance of destruction. Its flame-like, roiling black-and-white inspires trembling and gratitude” (Jim Hoberman, The Village Voice). 64 min.

  • The Zo

    2009. USA. Written, directed, and animated by Glenda Wharton. Wharton’s ambitious hand-drawn animated short, which recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is a dark and dreamlike tale of violence, abuse, and escape. New York premiere. 26 min.
