Love floats through Hollywood cinema like a flaming dirigible. ― Scott Stark

“The tenth edition of CROSSROADS culminates with Scott Stark’s Love and the Epiphanists a sprawling quasi-narrative sci-fi performance hybrid based on re-printed and re-purposed Hollywood film trailers. Throughout the program, explosions, eros, and (of course) apocalypse abound as history unreels and we fade to a marvelous view. Dig and search for the meaning of unexpected life.”

― San Francisco Cinematheque


Atomic Garden | Ana Vaz | 2018

“A reflection on transmutation, survival, and the resilience of myriad life forms in the face of toxicity. A stroboscopic tale of survival and transmutation.” (Ana Vaz)

Love Seat | Lyndsay Bloom | 2017

“An experimental film self-portrait considering love, loss, and the aborted. Utilizing a mechanized dolly, layered images suggest the multiplicity of one body. (Lyndsay Bloom)

The Sequence of Years | Ben Balcom | 2018

“A feeling of forgetting rendered with first-person camera work, lens play, and image stabilization.” (Ben Balcom)

Fountains of Paris | Stephen Broomer | 2018

“Paris, past and past and present. The fountains of Paris witness day passing into night, gatherings of children and workers and lovers.” (Stephen Broomer)

Saturno | Colectivo Los ingrávidos | 2018

“Colectivo Los ingrávidos emerges from the necessity to dismantle the audiovisual grammar and aesthetic of television and cinematic corporatism through which it achieves social and perceptual control over the population.” (Colectivo Los ingrávidos)

Love and the Epiphanists (Part 1) | by Scott Stark | 2018

“Live cinema performance including wide-screen slide projections, digital video, audio recordings, spoken text, and 35mm film projection, with footage sourced from altered and repurposed Hollywood movie trailers. An apocalyptic narrative of ‘the Epiphany.’” (Scott Stark)
