Filmforum LA presents Alex MacKenzie's dual projector 16mm film

Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 8:00pm


Inspired by the work and thought of 1940s marine scientist Ed Ricketts, INTERTIDAL is a submersive exploration of the tidal zones and marine life off the shores of Western Canada.  The route, from Nootka Sound in the West to the tip of Naikoon on Haida Gwaii in the North, mirrors that which Ricketts and his close friend, John Steinbeck, intended to revisit prior to Ricketts' untimely death in 1948.

Alex MacKenzie is an experimental film artist working with analog equipment and hand processed imagery to create works of expanded cinema, light projection installations, and projector performances.  He was the founder and curator of the Edison Electric Gallery of Moving Images, and the Blinding Light!! Cinema.
