For more than three decades Chicago filmmaker Adele Friedman has been forging and refining an original vision with her silent portraits, in which wide-angle cinematography and obsessive panning spread out the spaces of apartments and gardens, creating a sensuous panorama of the ordinary. Though these techniques tend to give all background details equal emphasis, they strengthen the presence of human figures, letting their gestures and the objects around them reveal who they are. Northport, for instance, presents a male couple and one of their moms enjoying a lakeside home; playing cards on a table, seen over shoulders, or eggs broken, seen between fingers, take on an almost fetishistic importance. The nine films on this 81-minute program give an excellent sense of Friedman's work since 1983.
