LARRY GOTTHEIM IN PERSON

Screening in the presence of the filmmaker

Larry Gottheim is a key figure in the history and development of American avant-garde cinema through the 1970s. Born in 1936, he taught 16mm filmmaking for more than three decades in the prestigious film department of Binghamton University in the United States, which he founded and where Ken Jacobs, Hollis Frampton, Peter Kubelka and Ernie Gehr taught among others.

In the first period of his work in the early 1970s, the films were made as sequence-shots (continuous or semi-continuous shooting), thus signifying his rejection of conventional montage. Constantly evolving throughout his career, his film work gradually transformed into a cinema of presence and observation. While addressing the genres of landscape, diary and found-footage film, Gottheim's cinema is constructed on a direct and sensual experience that collides with complex repetitive structures, marking a deep interest in the questions of anticipation and memory.
