VISITING ARTIST—Working primarily on 16mm and hand-processing his films, Ben Popp works in the traditions of experimental and underground cinema. A co-founder of the Portland microcinema Grand Detour and Experimental Film Festival Portland, tonight Popp presents his own short films, including: Omar (2000); Dance of the Deviant (2008), featuring his first use of hand-processed black-and-white animation; Sexy Noir (2009), a collaboration of his animation combined with live elements by Kenny Reed; the live-action Devour (2009); Laszlo Lassu (2011), a sweet music film for the band A Hawk and a Hacksaw, about lovers separated by the recesses of space (selected by the Ann Arbor and Northwest Filmmakers’ Festivals); and A Thauama-Tale (2014), which uses digital stills to create animation.
