From the Brooklyn Rail 9/2008:
"The day after Bruce died, I read an interview conducted by Paul
Cummings posted on the Web (www.aaa.si.edu/collections/oralhistories/transcripts/conner73.htm
). In it, Bruce mentions the screening of a film that I have never
seen listed in his filmography and certainly don’t remember hearing
him talk about it. The film was made entirely of leader, and had a
soundtrack derived from a movie about American G.I.s captured by the
Germans during World WarII. Conner did various things to distort the
soundtrack, which basically repeated phrases such as, “Let’s get out
of here.” “We can’t stay here, we have to escape.” The audience, of
course, took the cue and didn’t stay to watch it through to the end.
According to Conner, he was the only person still in the room each
time he showed it."-John Yau
Can anyone identify the name of this film?
Does anyone know if it is available to be presented as part of Bradley
"Void For Film,"
a seven hour marathon of imageless cinema,on Friday April 17,
(part of the Migrating Forms Film Festival
at Anthology Film Archives)?
