CHICK STRAND: WISH YOU WERE HERE

Dir. Chick Strand, USA, 1966-1986, 120 min., NR, 16mm, at Third Man Records
Thu, Jul 17 at 7:00 pm at Third Man Records

Following Light and Sound’s recent tributes to Bruce Baillie and Canyon Cinema, the obvious next stop is to highlight the sublime work of Chick Strand, Baillie's co-conspirator in the formation of Canyon. Strand's films infuse avant-garde techniques into the documentary form, often reshaping the tendencies of traditional ethnographic cinema and challenging the way First World documentaries approach their exoticised subjects. This career-spanning program sheds light on three decades of rarely-screened work, celebrating her monumental contribution to the American underground.
