Tonight we welcome Seattle filmmaker and Evergreen College faculty member Caryn Cline for an evening of her work focusing on biological processes, found footage, and documentary. The program will include In the Conservatory (2010), in which organic materials from a Seattle conservatory were placed directly onto clear 16mm film leader. With its use of an optical printer and ambient sound, the viewer experiences the auditory and visual essence of place. Compost Confidential (2012) documents the deterioration process of a compost bin. Perchance (2008) combines two educational films and uses an optical printer to create a new tale of a young boy dreaming of a different self. Cline will also conduct a production workshop on Botanicollage on Saturday, September 23.
