Upcoming Show: Tara and Gordon Nelson screening at Anthology Film Archives in NYC

Friday, December 14 at 7:30 pm SHOW & TELL at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue New York, NY

MOVIES FROM THE MULTIVERSE: FILMS BY TARA AND GORDON NELSON
Filmmaking spouses Tara and Gordon Nelson present an extensive selection of their Super-8mm and 16mm films, in a program that encompasses quadruple projections, sound performances, live editing, audience interaction, found-footage dance parties, and other extraterrestrial surprises. Hailing from the celluloid paradise of Pittsburgh, and currently residing in Boston, they have created a body of work, both separately and together, that explores the many ways in which Super-8mm and 16mm film can document, manipulate, and transfigure reality. Given their embrace of performance and happenstance, no two shows are ever alike – prepare to be dazzled!
