24th And Tomorrow () 16mm, black and white, 22 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Political / Social Activism

The responsibility of every thoughtful citizen in any city, large or small, to his society and community is amply demonstrated in 24TH AND TOMORROW. This film is a true story of a one-man crusade against neighborhood indifference. It shows what can and has been done to re-new through local action, a nearly forgotton slum area. Special emphasis is given to the problems of littering, refuse disposal, housing violations and citizens enlightenment. --F. M.

Dixie Paradise () black and white, 9 min

Keywords: Dance

DIXIE PARADISE is a sensual experience, emphasizing through movement and sound, the exciting, elemental attraction of a dance craze. This wild and uninhibited dance frankly calls forth our basic rhythmic impulses. The dance crosses class and racial lines in making its universal appeal. The film was shot in a Harlem night club called Paradise. --F. M.

In the Beginning (1973) 16mm, color, 8.5 min

Genre: Narrative, Experimental

Keywords: Literature & Theater

The much-acclaimed special effects used in Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - A SPACE ODYSSEY were created by the producer of IN THE BEGINNING. Witheld from distribution until now, this short film tells through the use of these same unique special effects the story of the Creation. It is spoken in English, French and German, with Debussy's "La Mer" underlining the dramatic narration. --F. M.
