Film - Feature | February 16 | 7 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
In 1965 Samuel Beckett released his only film, a collaboration with Buster Keaton that obliquely explored cinema and perception. Ross Lipmans fascinating kino-essay examines the production and implications of the resulting Film. Drawing on outtakes, audio recordings, and other rare archival materials, Notfilm is a brilliant examination of its significance in relation to Becketts dramatic works and to film theory. Lipman very persuasively and masterfully shows Film's continuing importance (Jonathan Rosenbaum).
