Description

Studio Screen: Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One

(In Honor of the 50th Anniversary of Symbiopsychotaxiplasm and the Studio Museum)
William Greaves, 1968, 75 min

In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One, 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.

The screening will be followed by a talkback session addressing the films formal experimentation and critical political interventions (speakers to be announced at a later date).
