I think Susan is capable of defending her position and has very
clearly done so.
I've been lucky enough to be able to present a free series here in
NYC, starting in 1998 and continuing
-less frequently than I'd like - today.
The Electrical Retrospectacle. I volunteer my time and
pay for the rentals myself. Because I love the work and want to share
it with "emerging" what-evers.
here are some of the programs if anyone is curious: http://
There are others on this list that have done the same. I don't recall
Jeanne Liotta, Brian Frye or Bradley Eros charging
filmmakers to look at their work and they charged nothing to five
bucks admission.
