Abstractions: Films by Jon Behrens

A pioneer of the Northwest’s experimental film scene, Seattle filmmaker Jon Behrens has been making visually striking optically printed films for over 25 years, and is also known for his viscerally haunting soundscapes, which combine field recordings and ambient synthesizer tones. Join us as he presents a selection of his colorful work, ranging from Undercurrents (1994), which superimposes urban landscapes over naturally forming patterns, to The Colors of Boulder in the Summer (2015), in which airbrushed, kaleidoscopic images dance around a warm summer’s day.
