Nathaniel Dorsky’s HOURS FOR JEROME
Please join us for a reverent afternoon during which we will approach, in Nathaniel Dorsky’s own words, “a state of prayer.” HOURS FOR JEROME (as in a Book of Hours) was shot from 1966 to 1970 and edited over a two year period ending in July 1982. An arrangement of images, energies, and illuminations from daily life, these fragments of light revolve around the four seasons. PART ONE is spring through summer; PART TWO is fall and winter.
Dorsky is an experimental filmmaker and film editor who has been making cinematographically breathtaking films since 1964. He also authored the book DEVOTIONAL CINEMA, in which he writes of the long-standing link between art and health as well as the transformative potential of film viewership to promote more active forms of awareness.
