Nathaniel Dorsky for The Song Cave

By Harriet Staff


The Song Cave, publisher of chapbooks and full-lengths by writers including Chris Nealon, Drew Milne, Raphael Rubinstein and Trevor Winkfield, Jae Choi, Jane Gregory, and Jennifer Moxley— is fundraising for future publications with great incentive: a sweet print by American poet and avant-garde experimental filmmaker, Nathaniel Dorsky. August and After, selected by Dorsky specifically for The Song Cave, is a still that comes from Dorsky’s film of the same name. Each print is 8.5 x 11 inches (image size is 4.5 x 6).

The Song Cave is very excited to celebrate the remarkable work of the preeminent American avant-garde experimental filmmaker Nathaniel Dorsky with a limited-edition print, entitled August and After. The image is a still, chosen for us by Dorsky, from his film of the same name, made in 2012 after the passing of his two dear friends Carla Liss and George Kuchar.

“In film, there are two ways of including human beings. One is depicting human beings. Another is to create a film form which, in itself, has all the qualities of being human: tenderness, observation, fear, relaxation, the sense of stepping into the world and pulling back, expansion, contraction, changing, softening, tenderness of heart. The first is a form of theater and the latter is a form of poetry.” – Nathaniel Dorsky

All proceeds from the sale of this print, donated by Nathaniel Dorsky to The Song Cave, go toward funding our future publications and events. We appreciate your support.
