Barbara Sternberg: Surfacing - 16mm Films

Factory Media Centre and Dandelion Film Collective are excited to present Barbara Sternberg: Surfacing – 16mm films at Playhouse Cinema on June 14th at 6:30pm for Hamilton Arts Week.

This event is free, all are welcome to attend.

Award-winning Canadian filmmaker Barbara Sternberg will screen her widely renown film Surfacing (2004), and a new silent film created during the pandemic, Untitled #1 (sun vision) (2020).

Untitled #1 (sun vision) is a film of liminal thresholds, borders, amorphous states – sky, clouds, fog, lake, snow. A film in motion – camera gestures and emulsion activity. People and seasons pass in the daily repetitive cycles- repetitions and reprises and beginnings again – sameness amidst the fleeting. Blurring, merging, dissolving boundaries,- the world as it is forming and disappearing…Not nothing, everything.

After the screening, Sternberg will give a short talk followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Active since the 1970s, Sternberg’s films have been screened widely across Canada as well as internationally at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Kino Arsenal in Berlin, The Museum of Modern Art and Millennium Workshop in New York, and the Ontario Cinematheque, Toronto. In 2011, Sternberg was made a Laureate of the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts. In 2022, Sternberg edited (with Jim Shedden) Moments of Perception: Experimental Film in Canada, a collection of essays and profiles by Michael Zryd and Stephen Broomer tracing the various figures, film scenes, co-ops and movements from the 1950’s to the present day.

This program is presented in partnership between Dandelion Film Collective and Factory Media Centre:

Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Dandelion Film Collective is a loose consolidation of artists committed to working with analog film as a medium of expression and a format for exhibition.
