The Complete Films of Fred CamperMarch 4 & April 16, 2011, 20h
Fred Camper in Person at Both ScreeningsThe Nightingale
, 1084 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60642White Light Cinema
is extremely pleased to present these very rare public screenings of the complete films of Fred Camper
. Camper has been a thoughtful and articulate writer on film for over forty years (much of his writing is available on his website) and, more recently, has been producing an astonishing body of digital artworks. His earlier filmmaking practice, however, is little known. Long out of distribution (some never in distribution), his short 16mm and Super-8mm films have not been publicly screened for decades. And this presentation of his stunning feature-length Super-8mm film SN
is only its third-ever public showing. These films may not be screened again for many years, due to their irreplaceability.
