A rare screening of extraordinary work by Gunvor Nelson, the best kept secret in American experimental film. Magnetic intimacy combines with distance, a tension mirrored by astonishing camera work and editing. Respecting the filmed material, she lets it speak, from a portrait of her daughter Oona with a hypnotic soundtrack, to a comical feminist take on a stripper, to an indescribably beautiful swim, to a complex exploration of family. To filmmakers she offers this advice – ‘when you are really immersed, you, yourself… then the film emerges.’ As spectators, becoming immersed in Gunvor Nelson’s films is one of the best things you can do – something incredible emerges.
