Artist Sharon Louden in person

This selection of recent abstract animations, chosen by artist Sharon Louden, demonstrates that contemporary nonfigurative cinema is not only alive and well, it is thriving. These short moving image works—by artists Stan Brakhage, Paul Glabicki, Sky David, Larry Cuba, Michel Gagné, Chris Casady, David Brody, Adriano Abbado, Amy Yoes, Amelia Winger-Bearskin, Dannielle Tegeder, Phil Docken, and Sharon Louden—explore drawing in space, narrative constructed entirely through color, and the arrangement of moments in time. The artists are from many regions of North America and Europe. Composer Andrew Simpson performs new music to accompany the program, including the premiere of Community, a new animation by Louden. (HD-Cam, total running time approximately 90 minutes).
