Pursuit of Knowledge (1967) 16mm, color & b/w, 13 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature, Landscape & Architecture, Personal / Diary / Journal

PURSUIT OF KNOWLEDGE began in June of 1966 and was completed one year later. The first footage (in B&W) was shot at Foothill Junior College in Los Altos Hills as a course project. After graduation (and during!), I continued shooting until leaving for my three-month trek through the High Sierras. My mountain footage is a complete other trip, a microcosm of which is incorporated into PURSUIT OF KNOWLEDGE. I came to Philadelphia in Fall of 1966, continued school at Drexel Institute and Temple University, completed my film, and dropped out of school by Spring of 1968. The campuses which appear in the film are: Foothill, Stanford, Drexel Institute, University of Pennsylvania, and Purdue University in Indiana. Also appearing in the film are: The Sierras, my California apartment, Pine Hill state park in Indiana, several unnamed public disasters, and the Philadelphia Art Museum.
