First-Person Cinema with Ute Aurand: Program 1

  • In Person

The sun-filled Happy Bees is Margaret Tait’s poetic evocation of life as a small child in Orkney. Her Colour Poems, a composite of nine short films, considers memory, chance observation, and the subsuming of one in the other. Aurand’s wonderfully spontaneous Half-Moon for Margaret includes striking imagery of her friends observing a lunar eclipse, family gatherings and celebrations, delicate flowers and vast landscapes. In Four Diamonds, Aurand plays with the idea of a bridge game and the hands of its players contrasted with the stormy coast at Cape Cod. Her film portrait LISA was filmed over the years in Germany and Japan.
