The experimental films in this evening's program address issues of legacy, lifespan, and decay–both materially and conceptually. They include: 

Norman McLauren, A Phantasy (1952)
Malcolm La Grice, Berlin Horse (1970)
Charles and Ray Eames, Power of Ten (1977)
Naomi Uman, Removed (1999)
Liz Rhodes, Dynamo Duo (1971)
Adam Beckett, Flesh Flows (1974)
Scott Bartlett, OffOn (1967)

Curated by artist Molly Surno, the Cinema 16 series was named after the New York-based, avant-garde film society of the same name founded by Amos and Marcia Vogel that existed from 1947 to 1963.
