FILM SCREENING:  A Roll for Peter 

January 19

7:00pm – 9:00pm   


Following the Public Reception for the Exhibition

Florida Noir: Sunny Place with Shady Circumstances  



A tribute to the late Filmmaker Peter Hutton, A Roll for Peter will be screened at the UCF Art Gallery.  Twenty-plus former students, colleagues, and admirers of Peter Hutton answered an invitation to shoot A ROLL FOR PETER. The parameters were simple: shoot a single 100 feet roll of black and white 16mm film. The film is strung together with black film separating the rolls, as Peter often separated the single shots in his films. The series speaks of Peter’s strong contemplative aesthetic ethos. Each filmmaker will have 2 and half minutes of screen time to commune with Peter’s memory, and the collected rolls will become more than the sum of their parts. Work by Eve Heller, Christopher Harris, Kathryn Ramey, Roddy Bogowa, the organizing filmmakers, and others.  After the main program, there will be a showing of a short film by Peter Hutton as well titled New York Portrait, Chapter I.
