Gus Van Sant: Early Influences

  • Directed by Various
  • United States, 2015, 117 mins.

This program presents a selection of experimental works from the 1960s, made by some of the foremost practitioners of the personal cinema style that reached its early peak during this period. Included in the program are: Robert Enrico’s Incident at Owl Creek Bridge (1962), an award-winning adaptation of Ambrose Bierce’s Civil War story of a martial hanging gone awry; Arthur Lipsett’s Very Nice, Very Nice (1961), a rapid-fire, mid-20th-century slice-of-modern-life portrait; Bruce Conner’s A Movie (1958), an idiosyncratic, free-associative collage with—of course—movies as its target; Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising (1963), a legendary occult-biker mythological tale piercing the cult of male celebrity; Stan Brakhage’s Scenes from Under Childhood Section One (1967), the filmmaker’s vision of his children’s view of the world; and George Kuchar’s Hold Me While I’m Naked (1966), one of Kuchar’s finest works, an exploration of sexual isolation with a twist.

Shorts I: Known and Unknown (Or Unknowable)

The observable universe–isotropic in orientation–does not conform to all observers equally. As perspectives shift, that which is known and unknown (as well as knowable and unknowable) shifts accordingly. It fails to remain the same in all directions.
