Experimental work by two Chicago-based filmmakers. In the voice-over to Confederation Park (1999), Bill Brown makes reference to “the secret languages of exile,” and while this reflective, even somber film presents a pastiche of places across Canada where Brown has lived, its real subject is the limits of knowledge. Thomas Comerford used a pinhole camera to shoot Fey Eyes Pinholes Drums Hum (1999), and despite the film's rather obscure structure, its diverse soft-focus landscapes have a haunting and weirdly distanced virtuality. He employs the same technique in ILLA CAMERA OBSCVRA (The Dark Room), which shows mostly interiors and windows, its mildly fuzzy cinematography creating a strong meditation on the tenuous nature of filmed images. Also on the program, Brown's Buffalo Common (2001) and Comerford's Depart (2000) and Figures in the Landscape. 98 min.
