Somewhere Between Here and Heaven. Bruce Baillie

The CCCB's cinema


In the form of some of his most important films and the reading of correspondence with Stan Brakhage and Chick Strand, this programme explores the life and work of Bruce Baillie, founder and leading representative of San Francisco’s avant-garde cinema movement.

Bruce Baillie’s mission has always been to get beneath the surface to the spiritual essence of an increasingly alienated and confused world. Alongside his films, this programme includes a reading of letters written over the decades from a body of correspondence with two of his closest friends, Stan Brakhage and Chick Strand. Presented by the programmer, Garbiñe Ortega.
