SEPTAGENARIAN COLLABORATIONS is late work by two video makes (in their mid-70's) who, since the 1970's, have been working both as programmers of experimental media (Berks Filmmakers: 1975-2012) and as film/video artists (shows at SF Cinematheque, Millennium, MoMA etc.). Of late, they have been working on a series of seio-comic, experimental videos based on well-known literary "classics"; these: "are inspired by & deticated to the picturemakers/illustrators whose work appeared, in even the most ancient editions of the texts. Most of all the videos are a celebration of the glorious panels & frames of the Classic Comics that intervened/rescued us (as school boys in the 1950's) from a repressive, sanitized educational system that kept us away from, thus nearly obliterating our access to, the bold, colorful, often grotesque truth & beauty these myths & tales contained." -G.A. / J.O.
