Friday August 12

Director: William Greaves
1968 / 75min / DCP

A nesting doll-like kaleidoscopic docufiction, a metatextual narrative experiment, a film about making a film that shows a group of Actors Studio students going through an audition process in Central Park, a time capsule of New York, a barometer of the culture… Greaves’s classic is all this and more, a film about which no superlatives can be overused and whose influence cannot be overstated, a magnificent collision of process, form, and personality, and as much a record of brilliant improvisation as its Miles Davis score. “One of the most daring and original films of [its] time.”—The New Yorker
