The TIE Show at Montserrat

 Chris May and Ethan Berry Setting up for the first TIE show at Montserrat. We screened 13 films on Thursday October 11th. Two films premiered in this program; Paul Clipson's luscious color print of ANOTHER VOID and Josh Weissbach's brand new print of STORM CROSSING. We also put up two multi- projector films; TWIN PROPELLORS in Super-8  by Jason Halprin
and PARKOUR in 16mm by Chris May. Along with about 90 minutes of other 16mm work. It was an ambitous program of Super-8 and 16mm films utilizing six projectors. Chris did a great job of putting this program together with Abstract, Structuralist, Found Footage, Diary and Poetic Narrative works.
Thanks to all who came and also thanks to Institute friends Damaris Chapin-Berner and Mike Evers who's equipment made this presentation possible.
