TWO DREAM FILMS BY RICHARD MYERS
Richard Myers in person

Ohio filmmaker Richard Myers has been creating a unique and powerful cinema for five decades, producing several short and feature 16mm works that have shown internationally, winning numerous awards worldwide.  We are thrilled to have him join us in Los Angeles for the first time in many years, for a trio of programs taking place at NewTown Pasadena (June 25), The Velaslavasay Panorama (June 26), and Los Angeles Filmforum (June 27).


THE PATH
(1961, b/w, 16mm, silent, 20min.)

With accompaniment by Hail Corridor.

"Light as the symbol of the ineffable. The 'plot' of this subjective recreation of a dream seems to concern a mysterious journey; the spectator, however, is visually directed toward forms and substances rather than to the protagonists by a filmmaker who is a master of visionary cinema." (Amos Vogel, Film as a Subversive Art)

"Richard Myers has, thru his films, given us the ONLY consistently creative variable to dream-thinking in our time. All else, in film, slides toward surrealism and/or props itself with misplaced Freudian symbols, at best, or else gets lost in the Jung-le, at the verses. Myers' work is rooted in what he doesn't know about, just exactly what he knows - his own home grounds mid-America, and like D.W. Griffith he takes the great risk of being native to his art, attending it on its home-grown grounds/his-UNowned-dreams." (Stan Brakhage)


37-73
(1974, b/w, 16mm, sound, 60min.)
With Jake Leed, Kelly Myers, Mary Leed, Marjory Myers, "Da" Croft.

"Richard Myers' 37-73 was far and away the most noteworthy film in the Exposition (9th Annual Independent Filmmakers Exposition). In fact, Richard Myers is, in my opinion, one of the few innovative conceptually oriented filmmakers in the country. As powerful and complex as is AKRAN, 37-73 is more taut, richer in associative meaning .... 37-73 is about dreams, about memory and its associations with nightmare and magic." (Owen Shapiro)

"I think 37-73 is an extraordinary work, and the best of [Myers'] long films. I am astonished by [his] skill in image making, and his power to evoke the crazy pain of being an artist. It is a haunting work, with unforgettable scenes ...." (James Broughton
