Bruce Baillie – Why Take Up the Camera

Fri 7.10 18:00 & Sat 8.10 18:00


“I want everybody really lost, and I want us all to be at home there. Something like that. Actually I am not interested in that, but I mean that’s what you could do. Lots of people would like it. I have to say finally what I am interested in, like Socrates: peace . . . rest . . . nothing. ” 
Bruce Baillie, in conversation with Richard Corliss



Today’s first program of the retrospective dedicated to Bruce Baillie’s work starts at 18:00, compiling a number of Bruce Baillie’s poetic and social documentaries created for Canyon Cinema venues, entitled The News. These little films provided a format for creating low-budget, urgent, and politically motivated works. They also demonstrated possibilities for a more immediate transition from production to exhibition.

This program will have a second screening tomorrow, Saturday 8th at 18:00.
