San Francisco Cinematheque says…

Nathaniel Dorsky has spent a lifetime exploring the expressive photographic potentials of Kodachrome film. Sadly, the development of Kodachome will cease in Dec. 2010. As if in observance, Compline, Dorsky's final Kodachrome film, is described as "a night devotion or prayer, the last of the canonical hours, the final act in a cycle. The "sister films" Aubade and Pastourelle, represent a turning point for the artist–his first works shot on color negative film. These films impart the poetics of loss and new of beginnings. Finally, 2008's Winter is an ode to the uniqueness of the San Francisco season: fleeting, rain-soaked, verdant, a brief period of shadows and renewal.Nathaniel Dorsky in person presented in collaboration w/ SFMOMA, in association w/ the Poetry Center.
