Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One (1968) Learning Beyond the Classics
Learning Beyond the Classics Documentary: Fact or Fiction?
Directed by William Greaves
Not Rated, 70 minutes, DCP

In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid, director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York's Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they're making.

A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies.

Free for ND, SMC, HC, and IUSB students.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Documentary Film.
