BAGEROO ELEVEN! Volume 2Saturday, January 27, 7:00pm
With so much amazing work this year, the programming committee is thrilled to share three wonderful volumes of this year’s Bageroo programme! Selected from our open call for submissions, these featured films explore how artists explore different concepts, realities, and ways of interacting with the world around them. This volume is augmented by a commissioned film by Clint Enns.
2016 / super 8 / live sound / 3.3
Shot on super 8 using all in-camera edits, Convolve uses prisms, water refractions and warped chrome to obscure the already obscured path of The Maze. The score is created live, by utilizing an analog-video camera feed of the film as an audio output, creating a perfectly synced, jarring and mesmerizing, soundtrack
I Dream of Inadequacy
2017 / super 8 / sound / 2
The writer Michael V. Smith asked several filmmakers to visually interpret a poem from his latest book Bad Ideas. Juli Saragosa combines a textured sound design and hand-processed super 8 footage of abandoned places with Google Street View and rotoscoped imagery of talking ravens in this rendering of a poem about the feelings of shame and inadequacy.

A short exploration of Guyanese identity, its history of colonization, and Caribbean indentureship, examined through bangles.

Draft for a Scenario
2017 / super 8 / live performance / 45
Draft for a Scenario is an expanded-cinema work comprised of a single loop of Super 8 film created in-camera and then edited live by cutting and splicing the film material in motion while it is simultaneously projected on-screen. Film editing is often referred to as the “invisible art”, and at its most fundamental level it is a practice intended to hide or obscure the traces of its own interventions. Draft for a Scenario subverts this established relationship by foregrounding the re-composition, or editing of the picture as the primary cinematic experience.
