Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco is hosting a screening of my films on September 23, and I’ll be there to present them.
Films from Four Mountain Ranges by Marcy Saude
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.
