Craig Baldwin is a filmmaker and curator whose interests lie in
archival retrieval and recombinatory forms of cinema, performance, and
installation. Baldwin attended lectures by the experimental film-maker
Bruce Connor during his studies at San Francisco State University.
He studied the work of Dziga Vertov, John Heartfield, Robert
Nelson, Paul Sharits and other artists who use "found" footage.
He is the recipient of several grants, including those
from the Rockefeller Foundation, Alpert Award, Creative Capital,
Phelan, AFI, FAF, and California Arts Council.
Over the last two
decades, his productions have been shown and awarded at numerous
international festivals, museums, and institutes of contemporary art,
often in conjunction with panels, juries, and workshops on collage and
cultural activism. His own weekly screening project, Other Cinema, has
continued to premiere experimental, essay, and documentary works for
over a quarter century, recently expanding into DVD publishing.
Baldwin is renown for the movie Spectres of the Spectrum (1999), a science fiction film about a young woman
with telepathic powers, who travels back in time to save the world from
an electro-magnetic pulse. An archeology about technology from media to electromagnetism: video.google
