NYFF 2010. VIEWS ON VIEWS

Forty-five views of the New York Film Festival's Views from the Avant-Garde program—5x9 images of a three-day weekend spent indoors at the Walter Reade Theater, of eleven programs of seventy-six films/videos (and two performances), of twenty-four hours of moving images burned into our collective rods/cones.  Photographs made surreptitiously under the cover of relative darkness by Ben Russell (whose film Trypps #7 (Badlands) was screened as part of the festival), with a sheepish apology to the fellow who tapped him on the shoulder and said "Please put that away."

My cheesy photos are worth annoying those around me!
I sure hope so Jack, pleasure share! Did you go to Views too?
I saw a few programs AND refrained from whipping out my camera while a movie played.
And granted I should not have said “cheesy”, but, man, if people putting their own inclinations in front of their fellow attendees, be it talking, texting or taking pictures, isn’t a pet peeve I don’t know what is. It is quite disruptive and disrespectful of others in the audience.
Although they continue to receive no real press coverage, the two films Views showed by Jean-Marie Straub were both excellent and very moving experiences.
