Nathaniel Dorsky film Premieres at the Anthology Film Archives, New York

Nathanie Dorsky COLOPHON (FOR THE ARBORETUM CYCLE) (2018, 13.5 min, 16mm, silent)

THE DREAMER (2016, 19 min, 16mm, silent)
“This year our mid-summer’s night was adorned with a glorious full moon. The weeks and days preceding the solstice were magically alive with crisp, cool breezes, bright, warm sunlight, and a general sense of heartbreaking clarity. THE DREAMER is born out of this most poignant San Francisco spring.” –Nathaniel Dorsky

World Premiere!
CALYX (2018, 13 min, 16mm, silent)
“I photographed CALYX during the rather tense 21 days preceding my open-heart surgery to replace an aortic valve and then shipped the footage off to the lab the day before my operation. I edited the 21 rolls about three weeks after coming home from a rather dramatic nine days in the hospital. I hope this little film captures some of the feelings of dread mixed with an elegiac feeling for our world. CALYX is the husk surrounding the tender bud of a soon to be flower.” –Nathaniel Dorsky

New York Premiere!
COLOPHON (FOR THE ARBORETUM CYCLE) (2018, 13.5 min, 16mm, silent)
COLOPHON has three sections. It is in the spirit of the early Chinese landscape colophons, a text added to the horizontal scroll at a later date from when the landscape itself was enacted. COLOPHON was not made to be shown along with the ARBORETUM CYCLE, but a new thing, a spring later, a different maker, so to speak.” –Nathaniel Dorsky

World Premiere!
APRICITY (2019, 22 min, 16mm, silent)
“The title APRICITY refers to the warmth of the sun in winter. It is an homage to the writer Jane (Brakhage) Wodening. In speaking to her I mused, ‘perhaps your age is the winter and you are the warmth of the sun.’” –Nathaniel Dorsky

Total running time: ca. 75 min.
