Degrees of Remove: Film Series
Special Focus on Michael Snow
La Région Centrale, 1971

Monday, November 24, 7:30 PM and
Tuesday, November 25, 7:30 PM

Made over the course of five days on a deserted mountaintop in North Quebec, the vertical and horizontal alignment as well as the tracking speed of Snow's equipment was all determined by the camera's settings. Anchored to a tripod, the camera turned a complete 360 degrees, craned itself skyward, and circled in all directions. Because of the unconventional camera movement, the result was more than merely a document of the film location's landscape, as its themes became the cosmic relationships of space and time.

at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003 (at 2nd Street).

Tickets: $8 general, $6 students/seniors, $5 members.
