{September 9, 2009}   Heap Us ‘Round Our Ruins

Film Screening coming! Like the carnival, it’s traveling to us. Filmmakers Ben Balcom and Josh Weissbach present Heap Us ‘Round Our Ruins: An Interstate Film Circuit, which is a fifteen state (and counting) film tour that will encompass all regions within the continental U.S.  Weissbach will showcase interiors of the liquid gap (2009), an experimental documentary shot on Super 8 and 16mm that focuses on Cuban exiles and the intimate sites of their lives before, while, and after crossing the liquid divide between Cuba and the United
States (45min). Balcom will showcase transmission (2009), celebration of dead leaves (2009), and every small heart is a miniature inferno (2008). transmission is a short experiment with the material being signals of perception (6 min).  celebration of dead leaves uses a combination of optical printing techniques and hand processing as tools to manipulate, as well as
emulate, our experiences of seeing and moving through the world (14 min). every small heart is a miniature inferno is like a free-verse poem (6 min). Both filmmakers differ in their approach and subject matter, but are unified by an interest in the vitality of the moving images as an experience of communication.
