Adèle FRIEDMAN

Nationality: american

Adèle Friedman is an experimental filmmaker whose films have been distributed by Light Cone since 1986. Her films encompass dreamscapes, landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. A special focus of her portraits is cultural people (artists, curators, collectors), and how their lives are informed by their interiors and artistic tastes. Some films are with sound, but most are silent, as she prefers the viewer to be completely absorbed with the image.
Friedman is a native of Chicago, MFA in Film from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As a graduate student, she was the teaching assistant for Stan Brakhage, and interviewed Hollis Frampton for the Video Data Bank, published by Light Cone in “Scratch Book: 1983-1998”. Friedman taught film production and film history at Columbia College, Chicago. She has judged for 28 film festivals. Friedman’s films have exhibited internationally: “A History of American 8MM Film”, Museum of Modern Art, New York; “Art in Chicago, 1945-1995”, Museum of Contemporary Art; Light Cone Preview show at the Georges Pompidou Centre; New York Film Festival; Scratch Projection, Paris; Mire, Nantes; Arsenal der Freunde de Deutschen Kinemathek, Berlin; Frankfurt Deutsches Filmmuseum, Kommunales Kino; Munich Stadtmuseum-Filmmuseum; Millennium Film Workshop and Anthology Film Archives, New York; Los Angeles Film Forum; Chicago Filmmakers; Harvard University’s Carpenter Center; Fylkingen, Stockholm; Scratch Projection’s traveling exhibition, “Fôret”.
