Like so many in our community, we're
devastated by Peter Hutton's death, and would like to join together in
commemorating his influence. Peter invited us to discover a new way of
looking; his films and his aesthetic ethos were suggestions and
Please consider joining us in a group
project that we think honors Peter's memory. Here's how it works: shoot a
100 foot roll of black and white 16mm reversal film, process it, and send the
entire (or a stand-alone portion of the) roll to us by October 1, 2016. We'll string them together with black leader
between the contributions, and screen them along with a couple of Peter's films
at a New York venue TBD.
Maybe you were his student, his colleague, a
friend, or a filmmaker who finds his work inspiring. Maybe you haven't shot
film for many years; maybe you've NEVER shot film.... this is your opportunity
to try something new. Photographing a single, silent roll (always the
building block for Peter's work) should allow us each to think about Peter and
his work in solitude, and then bring the results together in concert with our

I have been making films and videos for the past 20 years. For many years I worked in 16mm, sometimes attacking the surface of the film with paint and
bleach to create abstract visuals. In the mid 90's I started to explore the line between fiction and documentary, and I made several films that depict characters wrestling with their place in the world. In 2000 I completed my first character based narrative work, At Home and Asea, about racial, geographical and class tensions in Baltimore, MD. I continue to work in the long form, and to also make shorter more experimental works. I have presented imagery in gallery contexts, as well as in conjunction with performance groups and musicians. I am always exploring how far I can stretch moving images.
