FINLEY’S BEYOND THE COSMODROME + MUSE +

Re-starting our season-series on the Sensibility of Place, esteemed San Fran cineaste Jeanne Finley personally introduces her hour-long essay, interweaving a poignant group portrait of nine Kazakh orphans coming of age in the shadow of a nearby Cosmodrome. Herself a mother of a Kazakhadoptee, Finley conjures a complex yet lyrical sense of space and time from the majestic landscape of the Steppes, from the local traditional culture, from the imagination of Soviet rocket science, and from the teens’ own writings and performances. Opening the program are four premieres from Finley‘s long-time collaborator, John Muse, all the way out here from his professor’s chair in PhiladelphiaMuse‘s videos alternatively explore an interior landscape of anxiety and imagination via playful gestures and direct address: American BreakfastAliveDuet, and giroscopio. $8
