A celebration of artist, filmmaker, University of Colorado Boulder Professor and graduate of the BU Cinema Department. “Phil Solomon, was among the great avant-garde filmmakers of this era. Solomon’s films and videos create an interior universe that has rarely, if ever, been surpassed in any medium for its intimacy, evocation of personal sensibility, expressive dream-like sounds and images, and for its sublime—and terrifying—sense of ambiguity between the recognizable world and its dissolution. Perhaps the last significant innovator of special effects on celluloid, Solomon magically transforms pre-existing images and sounds into dense landscapes.” (Steve Anker)
