Zach Iannazzi and Margaret Rorison In Person

The film/video work of Margaret Rorison—co-founder and curator of Baltimore’s Sight Unseen screening series—is described as “an impressionistic exploration into the visceral nature of memory and experience.” A featured artist in CROSSROADS 2014 and ’15, Rorison appears in person for the first time visits San Francisco to present a selection of these sophisticated and hypnotic works including the celestial elegy The Waiting Sands; PULL/DRIFT, “an immersive experiment in movement, rhythm, and ritual” made in collaboration with the Effervescent Dance Collective; vindmøller, a dense hand-wrought study of weather and Danish wind power; and her latest: One Document for Hope. Rorison is paired tonight with Zach Iannazzi who will present examples of his masterful hand-made cinema including California Picture Book, a drifting found footage compendium of Nor Cal seasons past; Preservation Through Dissemination, a graphic and abstract imagining of a visionary cinema inventor; and II, an foreboding double-projected home movie collage reflecting on accidental impressionism, mid-century male bonding rituals and the hubris of hunting culture.
