Rick Bahto & Alee Peoples Small-Gauge L.A

Rick Bahto & Alee Peoples:

Small-Gauge L. A. 

"Mysterious and lush explorations of the visual world...Rick Bahto's Super 8mm films play like formalist, haiku-like postcards to distant friends."   

– San Francisco Cinematheque

Rick Bahto and Alee Peoples are exemplary figures in the vibrant L.A. creative community committed to realizing personal vision through the hands-on intimacy of small-gauge film, DIY media and live performance. Bahto, a San Francisco transplant, plays with multiple layers of printing, rephotography and projection to explore the tension between the incidental and the controlled, while Peoples, an Oklahoma City native, uses Super 8 and 16mm film as platforms for whimsical storytelling with a nod to history. Bahto’s section of the program includes Accretions, for multiple slide projectors, and Compositions; Peoples is presenting the L.A. premiere of Non-Stop Beautiful Ladies, a street film starring decaying signage, car radios and human ad spinners.
