These poetic experiments incorporate a range of materials and techniques – newspaper collage and hand-painted film, 16mm and Super8 – to interrogate landscape, time, relationships, family history, and other great mysteries of human existence. The program concludes with a short produced by participants in Echo Park Film Center’s two-day found footage workshop. (67 min TRT)

A film produced by the students of Local Sightings 2023's 16mm workshop, "16mm Found Footage Fiesta," with instructor Lisa Marr of Echo Park Film Center. The workshop was produced through a collaboration of Echo Park Film Center, Interbay Cinema Society, and Northwest Film Forum. Students with a broad range of experience levels and artistic backgrounds came together to learn about using found footage, direct animation, emulsion lifts, and editing to transform existing film loops into something entirely their own.
