Cinema Ombligo

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Orange Alley Projects (see times)
Please join us for the opening of Cinema Ombligo
Saturday, August 3rd from 7-9
at 280 Orange Alley in San Francisco
(behind Valencia Street near 26th)

The films of Paul Clipson, Encyclopedia Pictura, Giselle Brewton and Lorelei Pepi are viewed through a small dime-sized peephole on the side of a victorian cottage using a secret mirror apparatus on the side of a house in an otherwise unnoticeable tiny hole. The films will be looped and screened in the peephole 24 hours a day for the month of August. The "cinema" is, of course, made to be seen one-person-at-a-time. The entire group of films can be seen in a loop of 15 minutes.

This project, called Cinema Ombligo, meaning bellybutton in Spanish, is organized by Orange Alley Projects, a group of artists with an interest in alternative art spaces and pre-cinematic devices.
You can find out more from orangealleyprojects.wordpress.com


The themes of the films --the internal, searching, and the microscopic resonate with the peephole in the spirit of discovery and the unnoticed. The beautiful four films are all silent, short and non-narrative.

Special guests will include; a vat of delicious sangria, hand-made camera obscuras, special vending machines, and background films of Fernand Leger, Maya Deren, Pat O'Neill and more.
