Durham Cinematheque: Circle Spiral Slow 

When: Fri., June 20, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: Free but donations requested.
Durham Cinematheque brings experimental film and early cinema to outdoor spaces around Durham. Series mastermind Tom Whiteside's latest vision is an archival film program that revolves—the term is apt—around the rubric "Circle Spiral Slow." This theme is embodied in languid long pans across Coney Island at Night (Edwin S. Porter, 1905) and the hypnotic swirls of Marcel Duchamp's only film, Anemic Cinema. Also on the program are Whence Does He Come? (Ferdinand Zecca, 1903) and a variety of mid-20th-century motion studies and errata. Further emphasizing movement, the projected images rove over three screens, with instrumental accompaniment by Arrows Out. The 50-minute program follows the opening of In Pursuit of Shadows, sculptures by Christopher Kearney in the Scrap Exchange's Green Gallery. —Brian Howe
