The Films of Claudio Caldini

  • In Person

On this rare visit by the Argentine filmmaker Claudio Caldini, who began making Super 8 and regular 8mm films in 1970, he will present a selection of his Super 8 films including his multiple projector performance piece, Fantasmas Cromáticos. “Caldini emphasizes the idea of cinema as an activity of absolutely direct vision—an idea that . . . has always been, consciously or not, at the heart of the avant-garde. . . . Anyone who has seen Caldini in action can confirm that his work environment privileges calm over agitation and reflection over continuous action. His body of work, based on anti-despair, appears eternal, dematerialized, and transcendent in the sense that its virtues and its beauty seem to reach far and beyond, and it seems to have existed since the beginning of time” (Pablo Marin).
