Paul Clipson: Compound Eyes 1-5 and Sketches From the Field

The B-Side @ Neutral Zone

San Francisco-based filmmaker Paul Clipson presents his Super 8mm films.

Compound Eyes 1-5 (2011, 27 min) are studies of insect and animal life, viewed within a succession of environments in unexpected ways; with live music by Matthew De Gennaro.

Sketches from the Field (2012, 45 min) is a moving collage; this amorphous journey through landscapes, indeterminate spaces and fields of darkness, color and light, presents within the environment of a live performance by Chicago musician Scott Tuma, an ephemeral dimension of associated sounds, images, and latent impressions.

The program also features the World Premiere of Another Void (2012, 10 min), a vertiginous study of movement, color and darkness, that continues an exploration of the process of filmmaking and its close relation to music. With music by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma.

Please note: $5 general admission; Free admission for AAFF pass and ticket holders or anyone with a luminary from Full Moon.

Community Partners: The Studies and Observation group & WCBN 88.3 FM
