The Ruby is a catalyst for creativity and a new home for making art at Duke University.

“The films of Nathaniel Dorsky blend a beauteous celebration of the sensual world with a deep sense of introspection and solitude. They are occasions for reflection and meditation, on light, landscape, time and the motions of consciousness… Dorsky’s films reveal the mystery behind everyday existence, providing intimations of eternity.”—San Francisco Cinematheque

The Duke University Master of Fine Arts in Experimental and Documentary Arts program welcomes visiting artist Nathaniel Dorsky to Duke and Durham in the spring semester of 2018 for four nights of films, February 2-5. Nathaniel Dorsky: 18 at 18 features 18 films from the filmmaker, screened at silent speed, 18 frames per second.

Screening at the Rubenstein Arts Center at Duke University, the slate of films spans the filmmaker’s career and includes a new six-film cycle, Garden of Light, photographed at the San Francisco Arboretum in 2017. The Garden of Light cycle will be screened in its entirety as a world premiere.
