In the Spotlight: Long-form Films at Showcase 2012

An excerpt from Sunset by John Warren.

Showcase 2012—the annual screening of works from CalArts School of Film/Video students—begins in earnest tonight at REDCAT, focusing on long-form works from the Film Directing Program and the Program in Film and Video.

Three films are being screened:

  • Cuéntame de Bia (Tell Me About Bia) by Andrea Franco Batievsky (Art, Film MFA 3) is a 70-minute film that explores the life and work of the filmmaker’s late grandfather Bernardo Batievsky, himself a pioneering Peruvian filmmaker of the 1970s. She captures his life through conversations with her grandmother, her mother and their domestic workers.
  • Sunset by John Warren (Film/Video MFA 3) is a 30-minute “city symphony,” shot in 16 mm/Super 8 mm. The film is a walk down Sunset Boulevard from the ocean to the heart of the city.
  • Memory for Forgetfulness by Hyesung Moon (Film/Video MFA 3) and Kelman Duran (Film/Video MFA 3) is a 34-minute film with three chapters:
    1. A family lives in La Ermita in MOCA.
    2. Juanito’s bike is broken. He cannot work.
    3. Ana Kieli wanders.
