Founded in 2011, the annual Chicago 8 Small Gauge Film Festival is dedicated to encouraging and supporting filmmakers working the 8mm and Super-8mm formats through the exhibition of contemporary and historical works created in these humble yet inspiring gauges. Tonight Chicago 8 co-founder Karen Johannesen appears in person to present a selection from the fest’s first two years including: Mie Kurihara’s Small Poetry and Sheri Wills’ Fever, each ethereal and poignant meditations on light and shadow; Jason Halprin’s I Colonize The Golden Triangle, a travelogue documenting the maker’s travels through Northern India; Pablo Marin’s Diario Colorado, a fluid, masterful, multiple exposure study; Ross Meckfessel’s He, She, I Was, a series autobiographical fragments of friends’ lives; and Tara Nelson’s, Flying Fish, a home movie which brings us into the intimate living space of the filmmaker’s sister. Also screening: Paul Clipson’s Another Void; Clint Enns’ Sears Catalogue 2011/broadcast/a single tear; Sam Hoolihan’s Summer Elsewhere; Saul Levine’s Light Licks: By The Waters of Babylon: I Want To Paint It Black; Janis Crystal Lipzin’s De Luce; Gordon Nelson’s Feather; Pablo Valencia’s Blindside II; Naren Wilks’ Collide-o-scope; Tony Wu’s More Intimacy and Stephanie Wuertz’ Luilekkerland.
