Friday December 2 – Thursday December 8

Featured Film:

Michael Snow at the Northwest Film Forum

With seemingly every theatre in town inundated with awards-hopefuls and/or Christmas movies, I for one am thankful the Northwest Film Forum is presenting, on one night only, 16mm prints of two films from Canadian experimental filmmaker Michael Snow. Wavelength is his best known work, one of the most famous avant garde films ever made. From 1967, it consists essentially of one 45 minute zoom across a room (albeit with some slight edits and angle changes), while people come and go and one man, filmmaker Hollis Frampton, drops dead. We talked about it on The George Sanders Show back in 2014. Paired with that is Snow’s 1991 film To Lavoisier, Who Died in the Reign of Terror which I haven’t seen, but Fred Camper called it a masterpiece, and that’s good enough for me.
