The ‘Hyrcynium Wood’ is a 2005 experimental film by British filmmaker Ben Rivers who tends to work with old film cameras and 16mm. I like the layered misty anxiety of this short film. Rivers has a couple of films showing at this year’s New York Film Festival.
Seattle avant-garde filmmaker Jon Behrens made this gorgeous piece in 2008 with 16mm film, latex paint and inks applied directly to the film surface. It creates a mysterious space travel and exploratory sensation that has some connection – at least in my mind – to Kubrick’s 2001. There’s a big pile of magnificent work waiting for you to enjoy from this filmmaker. Visit his Vimeo page and personal website for more information.
