Cinematheque 31st Anniversary Weekend! Film Classics in 16mm!
United States | 1978 | Richard Myers
This key shot-in-northeast Ohio feature by the dean of Ohio filmmakers, Richard Myers, won first prize at the 18th Ann Arbor Film Festival. According to Myers, “Floorshow is a self-reflexive dream-filled parable, in which the protagonist is making a movie, speaks about where the movie is going, builds sets for the movie and shows movies…Floorshow contains images that move back and forth, through past and present, dream and reality held together by threads or irrational consequences. It free associates and repeats scenes. It lays words on top of images, on top of sounds and speech and visuals, pulling at the viewer’s involvement and internalization.” “There’s probably no filmmaker more successful in transmitting his imagination to the screen than Ohio experimentalist Richard Myers.” –L.A. Times. 90 min.
