#3 SPROUT is a hexagram from the ancient oracle, the I CHING or Chinese book of Changes. #3 SPROUT takes its place in the I CHING’s HOUSE of WATER. My version that explores #3 SPROUT refers to Global Climate issues, the abuse of the EARTH, fellowship and communication between humankind.
The third hexagram in THE HOUSE OF WATER series has water, as clouds, over thunder. Thunder arises and comes out of the ground in a great force. #3 is named “sprout” or “difficulty at the beginning”, like a plant pushing through the dirt, once roots are established, growth continues.
Its deeper interior energy also refers to a mountain sitting on the earth- keeping still while stripping away the old un-useable, yielding to the essential for a new time.

## states: “The situation of tumultuous chaos. This is a time of growth and all beginnings are always very difficult. The aware human brings order out of chaos.” It advises that nothing should be undertaken, other than participating with inspiration and guidance during this crisis.
Helpers are needed, working together creates a communal network of support, for growth to continue.

Director Biography - Lili White

Since 1978 Lili White has been exploring origins of myth, primacy of memory, exercises in self and counter self-imagining, and dreaming through her painting, film & video works.
White’s films have used in-camera editing, filterized audio and color, akin to Surrealistic “automatic writing”, and the Authentic Movement Technique practice. She is a fixture in the history of avant-garde filmmaking, and throughout her career she has maintained a dedication to experimental work created by women filmmakers, curating and presenting their work in group shows since 2010 through ANOTHER experiment by WOMEN FILM FESTIVAL (http://axwonline.com)), whose on-line shows pay filmmakers immediately upon rental purchase of their work.
Her films have exhibited with the Shanghai’s Duloun Museum of Contemporary Art, the American Museum of the Moving Image, the Museum of American Art in Philadelphia, Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, Millennium Film Workshop, and The Jersey City Museum.
which promotes and screens group shows of experimental films quarterly at Anthology Film Archives. AXW has had a Fractured Atlas Fiscally Sponsored Campaign and a recipient of the LMCC’s MCAT Arts Fund Grant.

Director Statement

I make pictures: some still, some moving, built with digital techniques. When using AUTHENTIC TECHNIQUE techniques, I find the body’s hidden knowledge, and translate it into disruptive, impressionistic, meditative films. These employ the I Ching, an ancient Chinese augury—relevant to all humanity; known to align with quantum theory. Chronicling the energy of the living world, it reveals society’s foundations, centering humanity between the ground and sky, inter- connecting these three into an all-inclusive universe. In the films, I change the human element into “personages” that conjure a capacity for awareness. Viewers surrender, entering a borderline space, where we dream together.
