The Red Thread: Larry Gottheim and His Films

Event poster by Matt McKinzie.

Join us at the Film-Makers' Cooperative (475 Park Avenue South, 6th Floor) on Friday, April 19th, at 7pm, to celebrate the release of THE RED THREAD: LARRY GOTTHEIM AND HIS FILMS, the first title from our new publishing imprint in collaboration with Eyewash Books!


“Early on, Gottheim, and other filmmakers working around him during the 1960s and 1970s, challenged us to rethink our conventional experiences with filmgoing: basically, to start over by deepening and broadening our perception of what the elements of celluloid cinema were and how they could be used.” Scott MacDonald

The Red Thread: Larry Gottheim and His Films is the definitive work on Gottheim, a key figure in the history of American experimental film. The artist's account of the evolution of his work over the decades provides an extraordinary window onto the development of the cinematic art form in America in the late 20th century. His own account of his lifelong exploration of the boundaries of cinematic perception is here combined with the reflections of other major film artists and critics on the importance of his work.

We are thrilled that Gottheim will be in attendance to discuss his book and screen his films Your Television Traveler (1991), Knot/Not (2019), and Entanglements (2022). This event is FREE and copies of the book will be available for purchase!
