Reminiscences: A Collection of Movies
by
Tom Tam

[December 12, 2003]

 

Join Tom Tam in an evening about the joy of making movies.  This collection of reminiscences recalls the innocence of youth, and its exuberant outbursts, from a demonstration against tourist buses in Chinatown to some interesting experimentation of personal cinema.

Movies shown:

Chi (5 min. silent) - Contemplation of patterns on a "go" board.  Something along the line of "History is a pattern of interpretations, the point is to change it..."

Tourist Buses, Go Home!  (11 min. silent) - One of the first youth demonstrations in Chinatown that include demonstrators who have now become "famous".

Open Your Mouth and Move Your Lips (3 min. silent) - Experimental work on strips of self-portraits from a Times Square photo booth.
