EXcinema is a group of Seattle filmmakers whose works fall between the cracks of traditional cinema, from direct animation on film, to experiments in digital media. EXcinema is also a monthly film program at the Grand Illusion Cinema, 1403 NE 50th St., Seattle, WA 98105, that is a meeting place for filmmakers and audiences who want to experience and discuss the best of the outer limits of cinema.
Working primarily in 16mm and Super 8mm film, experimental Seattle
filmmaker Linda Fenstermaker explores the interactions and relationships
between body and landscape while discovering new avenues for female
perspectives. Linda will be on hand to present a selection of her work,
including Abandoned Generations (2015, 10 mins.), which, told through
the perspective of a 1940s female farmer, juxtaposes daily life against
modern society’s distance from the Earth from which it came; Erased
Etchings(2017, 9 mins.), in which the essence of four Seattle homes
slated to be demolished are captured on celluloid, providing a record of
that which no longer exists. Linda currently lives in Bellingham and
splits here time making films with owning and running First Cut Farm.
