____________

Please join us in welcoming David Gatten for the first of three screenings in the series
Texts of Light: A Mid-Career Retrospective of Fourteen Films by David Gatten, in Three Programs

David Gatten’s films generate tactile compositions and draw novel conclusions from 19th-century scientific treatises, “outdated” 20th-century instructional texts, and rare books from 17th- and 18th-century personal libraries. Gatten, a leading figure dedicated to mining 16mm film’s continuing expressive possibilities in the digital era, was recently included in Cinemascope’s “Best Fifty Filmmakers Under Fifty.” – REDCAT
