:Red Shift

Sweden, 1984, 47 min

Red Shift is one of Nelson’s most admired films, a dense narrative film about family relations in which the various roles are played by members of her family. The film merges two diegetic times, both present and past, and pending between close-ups and long shots. Nelson’s depiction of family life is both candid and considerate, displaying an amalgamation of emotions ranging from delight to distress.

Swedish artist Gunvor Grundel Nelson was born in 1931 in Kristinehamn, Sweden, where she now resides. She has worked as an experimental filmmaker since the 1960s. Some of her most widely known works were created while she lived in the Bay Area in the mid-1960s and early 1970s, where she became well established among other artists in the avant-garde film circles of the 60s and to the present (Gill, 28). As of 2006 she has to her credit twenty films, five videos, and one video installation (Holmlund, 67). Her work has been featured in numerous European and North American festivals, one-woman shows, and she has been the recipient of several awards and grants. Some of these awards include: a Guggenheim Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts grants, as well as a Rockefeller Foundation grant (Holmlund, 84). Nelson's films were shown quietly in the underground circuit on the West and East coasts of the United States.
