Murray & Max Talk About Money (1978) 16mm, color, 14 min

Genre: Experimental

We are always interested in constructing ways of evoking the pleasures of cinema without implicity accepting an ideology -- of passivity, manipulation, and repressed violence - that we would explicitly reject. Can there be films that remailn cinematic withour indulging in one form of pornography or another? Murray and Max ... is, in part, a proposal, a blueprint, for such a form of cinema.

Margaret and Marion Talking About Working (1980) 16mm, color, 21 min

Genre: Experimental

"Margaret and Marion are sisters- one has worked for thirty years and is in the process of retiring, the other is returning to work after the same thirty years. Their words are fragmented into self questioning texts, while all the time Joan Strasbaugh, choreographer, marks time by building a room around them out of the classified pages of newspapers. The walls gradually close in on them and also on the camera crew, squeezing everyone together. As the atmosphere gets denser, the words become more spaced, thinner, and suggestive in their implications. But whose words are these? " G. W.

Cheap Imitatione Part V/VI; Terms of Analysis (1982) 16mm, color, 15 min

Genre: Experimental

Initially the subject of this film was the multiple threats constantly implicit in cinema ... especially in the perceptual acts of unifying with which we respond to the discontinuities of editing. So the basic images were knives and salamis. But as the music was reworked, highly charged objects began to appear and reappear; instinctual navigation took over, as always, in the editing room ... and the film seemed to adopt another subject entirely. As in all our work, many issues are in uneasy balance, and the film refuses to find a center. Words in the film refer to its own intertextuality. Who is speaking here? And who is addressed?
