dir. Michael Snow, Canada, 1981, 16mm, 95 min.

Known primarily for his major works of structuralist cinema Wavelength (1967) and La Region Centrale (1971), Michael Snow is also a prolific visual artist working in painting, sculpture, and photography, as well as video and computer graphics. Presents finds Snow addressing the key theme of his artistic practice: perception via the camera apparatus. The film is a tryptic where camera movement (and non-movement) are thoroughly examined. Even the title is a nod to Snow’s preoccupation with the complexities of language and communication. The results are both humorous and hypnotic.

This screening is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Michael Snow: Photo-Centric, on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from February 1 to April 27, 2014.
