Before Farm - A Screening and Artist Talk with Dale Hoyt, Presented in Conjunction with The San Francisco Cinematheque

Telematic is pleased to present, Before Farm, a screening and artist talk with Dale Hoyt, featuring precursors to the film, by Hoyt, at the center of our current, on-going exhibition, Farm and Friends – in 3D! Shot in Hoyt’s characteristically dissonant style, the films in the screening include an experimental documentary about the canned harmonies of Muzak, featuring the voice of Hoyt’s dying father; a prank phone call, based on a prime-time soap opera, which registers a distorting fracture in the American psyche; the dramatic re-enactment of an obscene Hollywood grimace; and a study in hysteria. In diverse ways, the films capture Hoyt’s sense of bewilderment; his sensitivity to difficulty, excess, and obscenity; and his uniquely abstract approach to narrative. The filmmaker will be on hand to discuss his work and to field questions about the films.
