From far beneath the ocean waves to the outer rings of Saturn, the films in this program present distant mental landscapes, considering isolation and human connection; resiliency; fantastical visions of withdrawal; escape and reconvergence; and conditions of captivity and resistance. Waves roll, parallel to the zodiac, as senses reel and planets turn.
This program is dedicated to the memory and transcendent vision of filmmaker Peter Hutton (1944–2016).
