Gone to Earth
In this, Michael Powell's and Emeric Pressburger's rarely screened, enchanted Technicolor masterpiece, Jennifer Jones is a half gypsy who runs barefoot through the rolling Welsh countryside with her pet fox (named Foxy) in arm. The gorgeous Jones as Hazel is pursued by both a kind pastor who wants to save her and a brutal Baron who wants to savage her. Hazel is torn between the two, but really belongs to the forest and hills where she feels most at home.
Director: Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger. 110 min. 1950. 35mm.
In Clipson's unnervingly beautiful Super 8 short, he explores movement into layers of time, with an ambiguous confluence of lights, colors and darkness. For the mood and the settings, Clipson was inspired by the nature scenes in Gone to Earth and Union was an attempt to address the inexplicable magic of the role of landscape and motion in the Powell/Pressburger film. Clipson, a San Francisco artist, will be in attendance (viewing Gone to Earth in a 35mm print for the first time) and will discuss both films in a post-screening discussion.
Director: Paul Clipson. 15 min. 2010. 16mm.
Part of the Flaherty series.
Paul Clipson has shown his films internationally in various galleries, festivals and performance spaces such as the Cinematheque Francaise, the Rotterdam Film Festival and the Views From The Avant Garde / New York Film Festival, as well as in venues in Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and Russia. He works primarily in film, video and on paper, often collaborating on films, live performances and installations with sound artists and musicians. Clipson’s largely improvised and in-camera edited Super 8mm films employ multiple exposures, dissolves and macro imagery, that bring to light subconscious preoccupations and unexpected visual forms. He has a Super 8mm program and perforamnce featured in this year's Views next week.
