The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) presents
an evening of short, finely textured 16 & 35mm films by John Price.

 

abstracts and almanacs
is a program of 6 films and a short intermission with a total running
time of 110 minutes.
New Directions in Cinema is a screening series presented by LIFT
showcasing long time members and their innovative film works. abstracts
& almanacs is a series of films made between 2002 and 2005 that
explore the vast aesthetic potential of century old film technology and
alchemical experimentation.

 

The program includes a film shot at some of the
largest industrial sites in China while traveling with the
photographer, Ed Burtynsky. Also featured is a 52-week cycle of films
shot in Central America, the US and Canada with a 35mm hand-cranked
camera and an experimental 16mm travelogue of a train journey from
Geneva to Istanbul. All the lab work on the program was done by the
filmmaker and will be projected on film.

 

Having shot and hand-processed film for over 15
years, John Price has created a body of work which stands in stark
contrast to the images that exists in the multiplex and on T.V. Since
receiving an M.F.A. from Concordia University in 1996, he has exhibited
his work internationally and has created numerous film projections for
opera and dance. He lives in Toronto.
