Nathaniel Dorsky at Anthology Film Archives, Introduction by and conversation with Anne Waldman, New York, NY
Nathaniel Dorsky at Anthology Film Archives
Nathaniel Dorsky, born in New York City in 1943, is an experimental filmmaker and film editor who has been making films since 1963. Dorsky, as Richard Suchenski writes, employs objects in his films as “decontextualized and sometimes unmoored from their surroundings, allowing connections to develop which resonate not only between shots but also across the films as a whole, encouraging more active forms of awareness.” Dorsky was a visiting instructor at Princeton University in 2008 and he has been the recipient of many awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Rockefeller Foundation among others. He took part in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and, in 2015, his work will be the subject of a complete retrospective at the New York Film Festival. Presented in conjunction with Anthology Film Archives, this program will present three films, Prelude (2015), Intimations (2015), and Sarabande (2008), as well as featuring the filmmaker in conversation with poet Anne Waldman on the nature and relationship of film with poetry and language in his work.
Please note, this event will be held at Anthology Film Archives, starting at 7:30PM, Monday, 11/23.
