A Spiral of Film History, presented by filmmaker and film historian Tom Whiteside, is a fresh look at old movies. The Odessa Steps sequence from Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin gets a filtered double projector treatment in Riffs on Potemkin. Landmark films that might be familiar, such as Lumiere’s Workers Leaving the Factory, are shown in a new light. From “orphan” films by the great See Yourself in the Movies filmmaker H. Lee Waters to “bastard” films such as cigarette commercials (banned from the airwaves since 1972) to avant-garde classics by Brakhage and Duchamp, this idiosyncratic view of cinema covers more than 100 years of film history. What is old becomes new again. Projection in 16mm film and video.

Films on the program include Anemic Cinema by Rrose Sélavy (aka Marcel Duchamp), 1926; Garden of Earthly Delights, by Stan Brakhage, 1981; Conjure Bearden by Tom Whiteside and Anthony Kelley, from archival footage by H. Lee Waters, 1939/2006; and Workers Leaving the Factory, 1895.
