The Opening Night Program of the 16th Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, a production of Chicago Filmmakers, features an exciting selection of new works by celebrated avant-garde artists.  In Gunvor Nelson’s Trace Elements (2004), lush digital images, an intricate soundscape, and a constantly searching camera create a work of mystery. Chateau/Poyet (2004), master collage animator Lawrence Jordan’s first film in several years, is a dynamic reworking of Poyet’s engraved illustrations. Bruce Conner’s Luke (2004) is a new digital video based on a never-released short film Conner shot on the set of Cool Hand Luke.  Su Friedrich’s The Head of a Pin (2004) is a wry observation on what happens when city dwellers encounter a country spider. Sharon Lockhart’s No (2003) frames minimally choreographed actions of Japanese agriculture within the visual tradition of 19th-century American landscape painting.
