Avant-Garde, Experimental, Program
Two raw, confrontational works by experimental filmmaker Luther Price, both shot on grainy Super-8 but screening in new digital transfers from Anthology Film Archives. Clown (2002, 30 min.) pushes one past comfort to a benumbed tedium and back again, as a demented harlequin pantomimes freakishness, loneliness, and disturbing insinuations of childhood trauma. A. (1995, 60 min.) is similarly discomfiting, a black-and-white portrait of a withered It Girl summoning her halcyon days with pills and booze; her derangement and despair are rendered in clear, kaleidoscope detail.
