Two by Richard Myers

In June longtime local independent filmmaker Richard Myers received the 2014 Cleveland Arts Prize Lifetime Achievement Award. Tonight we present two of Myers' earliest shot-in-NE-Ohio movies, each lasting a little over 20 minutes. First Time Here (1964) is a cautionary apocalyptic fantasy centered around an atomic bomb display at a carnival. When the film came out 50 years ago, legendary film critic Pauline Kael called it the "major discovery of the Ann Arbor Film Festival." Coronation (1965) is an impressively elaborate low-budget surrealist spectacle in which the "crown" is passed from one generation to the next. George Manupelli of the Ann Arbor Film Festival called it "a film without a dull moment."

Total 47 min. plus intermission. 16mm.
