Mabe’s films have screened at the New York Film Festival, Images Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, and the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival. He has programmed work in Chicago at Gallery 400, Links Hall, The Nightingale, University of Chicago, and the Chicago Underground Film Festival.

“But to the end of time certain places of the world remain defined for him as the place where those sensations were; and his only possible answer to the question where anything is will be to say ‘there,’ and to name some sensation or other like those first ones, which shall identify the spot. Space means but the aggregate of all our possible sensations.”

—William James
