Rare Films by Coleen Fitzgibbon
Presented by WHITE LIGHT CINEMA
October 15th, 2010
Filmmaker Coleen Fitzgibbon, who will present a selection of rare works from the 1970s. Fitzgibbon’s work has been making a resurgence over the last couple of years, with screenings around the U.S. and Canada of newly preserved prints of several of her major titles. This show will include one of those, RESTORING APPEARANCES TO ORDER IN 12 MINUTES, but will primarily focus on extremely rare films, mostly Super-8mm and Regular-8mm – many of which have not publicly shown since the 1970s, and some never shown publicly before. Fitzgibbon will be in person to discuss her filmmaking, her time at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her participation in Colab, an important early artists’ collective.
