LA FILMFORUM PRESENTS A SONG DISSOLVED IN THE DAWN: FILMS BY PHIL SOLOMON, PROGRAM 1

Sunday, October 20 at 7:30 PM 

Doors 7:00 pm; LA Filmforum pricing applies.

Phil Solomon (1954-2019) was an immensely passionate, inspiring, and kind-hearted figure to so many who encountered him and his work.  He inhabited this world as a generous friend, dedicated teacher and mentor, and as an artist of profound talent and feeling, whose films have inspired countless over the decades.  Los Angeles Filmforum has hosted Phil Solomon on a few occasions over the years, and he was always one of our favorite guests, presenting programs of great personality and memorable, lingering emotionality.  So although it is with great sadness that we now present a memorial program for our departed friend, we know that Phil would be so pleased at the thought of his beautiful work continuing to inspire new viewers.

This program focuses on what might be considered the more intimate, inward-looking side of Phil’s work.  These are films that come from very personal places, which nevertheless bloom into more universal and empathic experiences shared with us through Phil’s nuanced command of montage, mood, and manipulation of the photographic image.  Including his widely beloved breakthrough films The Exquisite Hour and Remains to be Seen, this program will also feature some lesser-seen rarities such as The Lateness of the Hour, What’s Out Tonight is Lost, and the delicate and little-known As if We.  It will be an evening of genuine cinematic poetry as we celebrate the life and work of a very special artist and friend.
