    An Evening with Hannes Schupbach at the Harvard Film Archive

    The films of Hannes Schupbach (b. 1965) extend the tradition of the meditative and lyrical film diary alternately defined by the work of Gregory Markopoulos, Robert Beavers and Nathaniel Dorsky, filmmakers united by an interest in the power and limits of the single shot and an idea(l) of beauty grounded in a fascination with nature.

    The films of Hannes Schupbach (b. 1965) extend the tradition of the meditative and lyrical film diary alternately defined by the work of Gregory Markopoulos, Robert Beavers and Nathaniel Dorsky, filmmakers united by an interest in the power and limits of the single shot and an idea(l) of beauty grounded in a fascination with nature. An accomplished painter and expert on textile art, Schupbach uses 16mm cinematography to explore cinema's painterly dimensions, bringing to his films a keen attention to color and light and their effect on mood and tempo. Schupbach's meticulously structured silent films, like those of Dorsky, discover a multi-layered world, often using superimpositions and reflections to explore the hidden depths of the places and people evoked within them. We are pleased to welcome Hannes Schupbach for a program of recent and early work that includes his lovely debut film Portrait Marriage (2000) as well as paired portraits of his mother and father-Spin (2001) and Verso (2008), respectively-and L'atelier (2008), a meditation on light and gesture within a gorgeously appointed artist's studio in Paris.
