The fall F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series continues on Sunday, Oct. 25, when animator Stacey Steers presents Night Hunter (2011) and other films. This and all F.I.L.M. screenings are scheduled on Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. in the Bradford Auditorium in the Kirner-Johnson Building. All events are free and open to the public.
Stacey Steers, a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, was the subject of two special tribute screenings at the 2015 International Festival of Animation in Annecy, France. Animation has always been the most labor-intensive form of filmmaking and, working alone, Steers has been an important contributor to this tradition.
Night Hunter is a 15 ½-minute, hand-made animation composed of 4,000 collages and shot in 35mm color. It re-appropriates legendary actress Lillian Gish, plunging her into a haunting new role. Steers will show Night Hunter and other work including a brand-new film, and discuss her process.
Hamilton’s Kirkland Endowment provided support for this event.
