United States | 1963 | various directors
1963 saw the debut of some great American underground movies (including Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures and Barbara Rubin's Christmas on Earth, both shown in October). This program contains five of them, all by major American avant-gardists, all on 16mm: Kenneth Anger's motorcycle masterpiece Scorpio Rising, an account of "Thanatos in chrome and black leather"; Bruce Baillie's lyrical To Parsifal; Stan Brakhage's camera-less Mothlight; Will Hindle's ecstatic Non Catholicam; and Marie Menken's years-in-the-making Notebook.
