San Francisco Bay area filmmakers Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler have shared their lives and artistic careers since the 1960s. Their work was feted in a retrospective at the 2015 New York Film Festival, screening films that focus on the natural world, their home, and lives.

Embracing 16mm experimental filmmaking, their work emerged from their initial meeting in New York City in 1964, where they experienced the work of artists breaking boundaries in film like Jonas Mekas, Stan Brakage, and Marie Menken.

Their early work was not shared publicly for many years, and was instead shared only with friends in private home screenings. Many of the films exist only in single prints making this screening and discussion a rare opportunity.

Dorsky’s work consists of short, silent films that traverse the natural world in interior and exterior spaces with color and light serving as the main subject matter. Dorsky also served as cinematographer of the musical sequences and editor on Owsley Brown III’s documentary Night Waltz: The Music of Paul Bowles.

As a painter and stained-glass artist, Hiler’s work centers on the use of light and its relationship to rhythm and visual poetry. Hiler spent an extensive period in Louisville as co-director of the documentary Music Makes a City.
