An hour of silence permeates Amsterdam public television.

An hour of my (silent) super-8 films were recently broadcast on Dutch Public Television - a first in The Netherlands I’m told - and something not likely to happen in the U.S. The 12/31/2020 show was programed by founder of the zapruder art movement, filmmaker and host of The Screening Room, Ronald Bijleveld. I’m beholden to Ron for his efforts in organizing and directing the annual Atrabilious Amsterdam Experimental Film Festival and his support of my work.

I understand this 60-minute program will continue to be shown in rotation once a month throughout the year, and is also available online through Video On Demand. The following shared note contains a link to view the complete broadcast on the SALTO1 channel.

PRISMATIC MUSIC IN SPAIN!

Following recent group shows in London, England and Curitiba, Brazil, I'd like to share news of my third show in Spain -- a solo in the city of Santander at the Filmoteca De Cantabria. Below is their beautiful theatre. Additional information can be found on the blogs: Cineinfinito #4 and Experimental Cinema. My thanks to both Felix Garcia and Marcos Ortega for their inspired dedication to film and ongoing support of my work.
