Old Cat from Angela Stempel on Vimeo.


This short film was made as part of a weekly journal, responding to the work of experimental films screened at the Cinematic Voices seminar at CalArts. Old Cat is a response to Kevin Jerome Everson's homonymous film created in 2009. Everson's silent, black and white 16mm film follows two men on a journey down a river.



The ideas expressed in this video are a personal interpretation of the film that inspired them and the conversation that followed the screening. Old Cat is not a transcription or summary of the content of Everson's film, but an impression I was left with after watching his work.

The Price of Eggs from Angela Stempel on Vimeo.


This short film was made as part of a weekly journal, responding to the work of experimental films screened at the Cinematic Voices seminar at CalArts. The Price of Eggs was inspired by ideas portrayed in Betzy Bromberg's energizing film Soothing the Bruise (1980).



Soothing the Bruise is a 16mm color film that was created early in Betzy's career as a filmmaker, after moving to Southern California from the east coast. In her film she highlights the materiality of the medium by making use of a variety of techniques, including different reversal stocks and the negative image. In Soothing the Bruise, Betzy explores the tensions of the oil crisis, the oversimplification of the american foreign policy for the masses, and inevitable stance towards having children as a young female artist.



The ideas expressed in this video are a personal interpretation of the film that inspired them and the conversation that followed the screening. The Price of Eggs is not a transcription or summary of the content of Betzy's film, but an impression I was left with after watching her work.
