Vestal Theatre, The (1971) 16mm, color, 10.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Personal / Diary / Journal

THE VESTAL THEATRE is a documentary shot in the lobby of a movie theater from behind the candy counter. The camera was turned off only when it ran out of film. It was shot sync-sound fixed camera. The movie goers could see the camera clearly (no Allen-Funt cute). Like Monet's cathedral, this same image would never have been the same again. The image is composed of complex, multilayered planes of focus. And I love the way people ask for popcorn and tap their dollar bills. Film time and real time are the same.

Conveyor Belt (1972) 16mm, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Comedy, Structural

This is a film which I keep changing. It's a structural comedy starring people's garbage, shot in the Harpur college snack bar; indigestion yellow. The beginning of thinking and working in a particular way with image-sound/image-silence relationships. --H. K.

Rose and Seymour at Home In Queens (1974) 16mm, color, 6 min

Genre: Experimental

Portrait of a family I lived with. They represent a large chunk of the past, ambiguous. A film in which the image serves as punctuation for the sound; the image is a tease. --H. K.
