I’ll be screening my work at the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles on June 23.
Films from Four Mountain Ranges by Marcy Saude
A program of recent experimental documentary shorts investigating marginal histories embedded in the landscape. Fragmented tales of outlaws, back-to-the-landers, farmers, and most of all- mountains. Former gold rush boom towns; serial killers in Santa Cruz, California; anabaptist folk medicine as performance art; anarchists and Comanche re-enactors; a rural festival of antique farming technology; quiet looks at counterculture architecture; lots of mountain-gazing in the Rockies, the Sangre de Cristos, Southern Appalachia and the California Redwoods; and attempts to push against the edges of non-fiction form. Approximate program running time: 70 minutes.
