Peter Hutton
July ’71 in San Francisco, Living at Beach Street, Working at Canyon Cinema, Swimming in the Valley of the Moon
1971, USA, 16mm, 33 min. Documentary, b/w, silent
A diary of free-spirited communal living and moment-by-moment observations of fleeting pleasures.

George Kuchar
Mosholu Holiday, 1966, USA, 16mm, 7 min. B/w, English
A special guest appearance by Canadian TV star Bill Ronald along with the massive presence of "Mrs. Bronx" herself, Frances Leibowitz, and her girlfriend Iris, make this film a must-see for travel enthusiasts and horror fans.

Pat O’Neill
Runs Good, 1970, USA, 16mm, 15 min
sound by Cisko Curtis
A darkish journey down memory lane, to visit some news events, folkways and thought patterns associated with the late forties and early fifties. The film is also concerned with such perceptual phenomena as color-space, "false tones" caused by varying black-white alternations of simultaneously seen rhythms set up by multiple repetitive actions, and the use of image outlines as "containers" for other imagery. Sort of a working notebook, which is continued in Easyout and Down Wind.

Paul Sharits
Epileptic Seizure Comparison, 1976, USA, 16mm, 34 min
An attempt to orchestrate sound and light rhythms in an intimate and proportional space, an ongoing location wherein non-epileptic persons may begin to experience, under 'controlled conditions' the majestic potentials of convulsive seizure. Fill is about two patients, extracted from a medical film study of brain wave activity during seizures.
