AMERICAN INDEPENDENTS III – BRUCE BAILLIESaturday, 21 January 2017, 7:30 pm

A cinematic heritage, seen through the eyes of a younger generation. As part of a more comprehensive film series of experimental filmmaker Bruce Baillie, presented by Spanish curator Garbiñe Ortega, the schmalfilmtage screen a selection of his poetic and sharply observant short films. This is not the unwrapping of old hats, but the revisioning of film history, when Ortega takes the life's work of a filmmaker on her trips, who co-founded, among other things, the art collective Canyon Cinema and the San Francisco Cinematheque.


The programme will be curated and presented by Spanish curator Garbiñe Ortega. She is currently presenting the series worldwide: from the Lincoln Center, NY, to the Tate Modern, London, and now at the dresdner schmalfilmtage.
