Southern Lights: Films by Pablo Marin

SF Cinematheque presents : Pablo Marin In Person

A prominent figure in the burgeoning filmmaking scene of Argentina, Pablo Marin appears in person from Buenos Aires to present a screening of his personal, lyrical Super-8 films, which—in the traditions of Narcisa Hirsch, Claudio Caldini and Marie Louise Alemann—bring “a structural/formal concern into the realm of autobiographical/intimate cinema” and demonstrate a dazzling proficiency at in-camera composition superimposition.
Films to screen include Resistfilm, a complex medley of elaborate superimposed homages to early avant-garde landmarks and wild landscapes of the 21st Century; Denkbilder, an international travelogue fusing Buenos Aires and Berlin, and other travelogues Diario Colorado, Carta austral (“a dark map of southern introspection”); 1640, “a lightning landscape”; and other films including xoxo, 4×4 and the complete Untitled Trilogy.
