BMoCA hosts OFF Cinema for a screening of Robert Fulton’s Wilderness: A Country in the Mind and Reality’s Invisible, presented on 16mm film.
Robert Fulton was a professional pilot and aerial cinematographer in addition to making his own documentary and experimental films. Filming in the United States, the Andes, Nepal, Africa, and elsewhere, Fulton often combined places and images to create dream-like flows of thoughts and associations. The exquisite kinetic rhythms of his camera movements and his editing, as well as his use of superimpositions, create lyrical and breathtaking visions with Fulton’s travelling camera embodying both internal and external journeys.
- Robert Fulton, Wilderness: A Country in the Mind, 1984. 16mm; 18 min. Produced by the Wilderness Society, dedicated to Ansel Adams.
- Featuring a live score by Boulder musician Pearls and Perils
- Robert Fulton, Reality’s Invisible, 1971. 16mm; 53 min.
