Electronic Elsewhere: Videos by Carl Diehl

  • Directed by Carl Diehl
  • Oregon, 2017, 70 mins., English

Portland filmmaker Carl Diehl, a founding member of the audiovisual group Weird Fiction, works in re-tooling narrative and documentary conventions to break down the very signals that make up an analog and digital images. Employing essayist techniques, Diehl examines the frayed world that is both make believe and just out of reach. Tonight’s program includes Derelict Dirigibles (2011), which examines strange things seen in the sky; Threatening Weather (2015), a meditation on utopian dreaming via the landscape existing in the internet; and 2017’s Little Rose City (2017), a tone poem for Portland before, during, and after the big one. Carl will introduce the program and be around for a Q&A after the videos.
