Outdoor film screening tonight at Hermitage, 9pm

Hermitage will be hosting an outdoor screening of Nathaniel Dorsky's Hours for Jerome, Part 1 & 2.
The screening will be taking place behind the silos adjacent to Hermitage, along the tracks at full dark. You are asked to arrive by 9pm.
This film was shot between 1966-1970 and edited over a two year period ending in July 1982. Hours For Jerome (as in a Book of Hours) is 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.
16mm color. 45 minutes.
We will be screening this film outside Hermitage behind the silos and right alongside the railroad track. The film will begin at full dark, so please arrive by 9 O'clock. This film is a rare treat and has been out of circulation and experimental film programs for some time. Don't miss this opportunity to view this beautiful film by a world renowned film maker working in silent film projected at silent speed projection.
(18 frames per second vs. sound speed at 24 frames per second).
