Afterimage: Three Nights with Nathaniel Dorsky

6/10/12 to 6/24/12

Local filmmaker Nathaniel Dorsky-whose exhilarating 16mm silent films relish in the possibilities of image making-joins us for three evenings of special screenings of his work. Our series kicks off on June 10, with New York–based curator Mark McElhatten joining Dorksy in conversation following a screening of Dorsky's most recent films. “A formalist with a brimming, elegiac soul, Dorsky will gently rock your attitude toward cinematic landscape”(Paul Arthur).
