CineMarfa 2012 

The films in the year’s program were grouped loosely together around the theme of “documentary in extremis” – documentary “in the farthest reaches” or “at the point of death”. They included  a tribute screening of abstract films by “absolute” filmmaker Jordan Belson, an exclusive cinematic performance by Harmony Korine in which the filmmaker presents his favorite outrageous YouTube clips, a program of rarely-screened documentaries about rural America by Harmony’s father, Sol Korine, Mark Flood’s art videos, a program of historic and rare avant-garde shorts curated by Thomas Beard of Light Industry, and a screening of the recently restored print of the verité masterpiece chronicling the alienation of American Indians living in downtown Los Angeles THE EXILES presented by filmmaker and scholar of  Native American film Cedar Sherbert.
