(rock/hard place) Roger Beebe Experimental 16mm

6:30 2006

Morro Bay, California is a little coastal tourist town known mostly for the Morro Rock, a volcanic plug that sits at the mouth of the Bay. In all the postcards of Morro Bay, the image is framed so that you can’t tell that just beyond the edge of the postcard, maybe a few hundred yards from the Rock, is a gargantuan power plant with 3 towering smoke stacks. This film tries to restore the power plant to the frame. ­ Roger Beebe

Orange, Red, Erupts

Theofano Pitsillidou
Experimental 16mm 4:00 2005

This hand-painted film is a composition of colors, sounds, and rhythms that capture how the sky experiences the rising and setting of the sun, and how we experience emotions that ‘rise and set’, that erupt and extinguish,

only to be ignited again as in an endless cycle. – Theofano Pitsillidou

In Loving Memory
Robert Todd
Documentary 16mm 47:00 2006


This intimate series of portraits offers a window, through their words only, into the inner lives of men and women living in maximum-security penitentiaries across the United States, most of whom are incarcerated on Death Row. As the title suggests, ‘In Loving Memory’ is a film about the connection between the common ground we share through our mutual mortality and the responsibility we accept as an enlightened society in respecting the sovereignty of life and honoring its dynamic power, its ability to

evolve, and its status as sacred. ­ Robert Todd
