Avraham: Film Still
Nathaniel Dorsky | 2014 | 20 minutes | silent speed | 18 fps | 16 mm | color | silent
In most of my films I have had the burden of adding a title on afterwards. Sometimes the word or words would come automatically, but often with great difficulty. In the case of Avraham, the title came first. It was not only the film’s inspiration but the very thing that determined every shot and every cut.
February: Three Film Stills
Nathaniel Dorsky | 2014 | 16.5 minutes | silent speed | 18 fps | 16 mm | color | silent
February was photographed during the first weeks of early spring in San Francisco. For me there is a haunted sense of restlessness in its form, some desire for a new freedom, a fresh sense of cinema. It feels to me to be the conclusion of an exploration that began with Triste, some 20 films earlier. What will follow, I do not know. N.D.

December: Film Still
Nathaniel Dorsky | 2014 | 14.5 minutes | silent speed | 18 fps | 16 mm | color | silent
I have been wanting to make a shorter film in and about a briefer period of time. December was photographed during this often turbulent month and edited soon after. It has a purity of form which I find quite rewarding.
