Found Images: Films by Scott Stark

  • In Person

Tonight’s program focuses on one strain in local filmmaker Scott Stark’s extensive oeuvre—the use of found images, whether industrial footage, movie trailers, amateur films, pornography, books, photographs, or, in the case of I’ll Walk with God, emergency information cards. Conceptually intriguing, often humorous, always surprising, these films are also often uncharacterizable. Stark constructs his most recent work, the performance piece Love and the Epiphanists, out of Hollywood movie trailers and other media, which he twists into a “playful and chaotic” futuristic narrative that is interrupted by timely history lessons. As Stark declares, it is a “pulsing, kinetic and intensely dramatic visual joyride.”
