Harry Smith Connections and Transformations

The Northwest Film Forum presents “Harry Smith Connections and Transformations.” Many of Smith’s interests and practices were forged in his youth in the Pacific Northwest. Northwest Film Forum is proud to present a tributeto this important cultural figure and one of the greatest filmmakers to come from the Northwest. The series features screenings of rarely seen Smith films made between 1946 and 1980, including early hand-painted works, collage animations, and the Seattle premiere of the recently restored, multiple-screen masterpiece Mahagonny. The series also includes a number of special events illuminating the peculiar brilliance of his work and creative process. Bill Holm and Chuck Pirtle in person.
