Power to the Puppets: Films by Martha Colburn
Part of Martha Colburn Residency.
Date + TimeThursday, November 05, 2009
LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
The result of a painstakingly slow and hand-driven production process, Colburn's animated films nonetheless teem with speed, their paper puppet stars running, tumbling, and falling apart in a constantly morphing and manipulated landscape. This program features shorts, from her First Film (1994) to the just-completed Join the Freedom Force (2009). Also on the bill is Colburn's contribution to the SFMOMA/Performa co-commission Futurist Life Redux, plus her music videos for Felix Kubin, Friendly Rich, and Deerhoof, among others. The films are accompanied by music performed by Thollem McDonas, a San Francisco–based pianist and frequent Colburn collaborator, and John Dieterich, guitarist for Deerhoof. Q&A to follow.
