1972 · New York
by Mekas, Jonas, ed.
New York: Film Culture Non-Profit Corporation. Near Fine. 1972. Periodical. [light handling wear only, a nice clean copy]. (B&W photographs) This issue is jam-packed with terrific stuff on avant-garde film, silent film history, documentary filmmakers, etc. Filmmakers whose work is covered by various features include: Ernie Gehr (interview/program notes/filmography); John Whitney (interview, several articles, "philmography" and bibliography); Stan Brakhage; Hollis Frampton; Patrick O'Neill (interview); William Wellman (an article by Louise Brooks about her experiences with Wellman filming BEGGARS OF LIFE in 1928); Robert Flaherty (the publication of an exchange of correspondence with Erik Barnouw, 1926-1929; plus an article on Flaherty's brief career as a radio announcer); an article, "Black Panthers in the New Wave"; Joris Ivens (a long interview, plus statements by Ivens); Rollie Totheroh (a long interview with the veteran cinematographer about his work with Charlie Chaplin); Phil Karlson (a discussion of his film "99 River Street"). An embarrassment of riches, really -- it's not hard to understand why this is one of the harder-to-find issues of this excellent publication. ***NOTE that we have many issues of this and other film-related periodicals that are not listed online, and we welcome your inquiries. .
