Abbott Meader — 3 Films

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

This special screening features new digital renditions of two of Abbott Meader’s 16mm films. SOUTH SLOPE (1979-80) is an elegant contemplation of a small patch of Oakland, Maine through the four seasons, set to “What Love Tells Me,” the 6th and final movement of Gustav Mahler’s 3rd Symphony; SHADOWS FROM THE WESTERN WALL (1973-74) is a cascade of Roman fountains and gargoyles through the centuries. And there’s a new digital film about Meader, PUSH PINS ON PARADE (2013-15) by Bruce Williams, a portrait of Meader’s gallery exhibition of the same name at Common Street Arts in Waterville.  Both filmmakers will be at the screening to discuss their works. Unrated. 65 Min.
