Just a note to check out Jeanne Liotta's program, Of Dark And Luminous Matter at Millennium Film Workshop, Sat. Dec. 15. Included in this show will be the starry night sky field recording, OBSERVANDO EL CIELO, hailed as one of the 10 best films of 2007 by Chrissie Iles in Artforum! (And adored by Invisible Cinema in tiny blog documents and comments fields!) You can read more about this film from Michael Sicinski at GreenCine Daily.
Some things you just have to see!

OBSERVANDO EL CIELO (2007) 16mm film, 19 minutes, sound by Peggy Ahwesh
Seven years of celestial field recordings gathered from the chaos of
the cosmos and inscribed onto 16mm film from various locations upon
this turning tripod Earth. This work is neither a metaphor nor a
symbol, but is feeling towards a fact in the midst of perception,
which time flows through. Natural VLF radio recordings of the
magnetosphere in action allow the universe to speak for itself. The
Sublime is Now. Amor Fati!" - J.L.
