Second Time Around

A program of short 16-millimeter films culled from Chicago Filmmakers programs over the past five years. Describing 9.95: The Most Important Moment in My Life (Infinite Set) (1995, 4 min.), Fred Camper writes that filmmaker Brian Frye uses “a high-speed camera to film himself doing nothing except slowly looking downward near the end; by expanding an instant into minutes, the filmmaker encourages us to focus on the grain, finding 'infinity" in its random variety.” Jonathan Rosenbaum calls Leslie Thornton's Peggy and Fred in Hell: Prologue (1988, 21 min.) “a key piece of defamiliarizing weirdness about a couple of kids adrift in a postapocalyptic universe, including some exceptionally strange found footage.” On the same program: Julie Murray's If You Stand With Your Back to the Slowing of the Speed of Light in Water (1997, 17 min.), Stephanie Barber's Flower, the Boy, the Librarian (1997, 6 min.), Eve Heller's Last Lost (1996, 13 min.), Stan Brakhage's Coupling (1999, 4 min.), Bruce Conner's Television Assassination (1995, 4 min.), Steve Polta's Fluttering (1998, 3 min.), and Peggy Ahwesh's The Scary Movie (1993, 9 min.).
