Introduction and Discussion TBA

(Dir. William Greaves, 1968. 75 min.)
The first widely seen experimental film by a black artist, Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One is a one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid. Director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York's Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they're making. A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies.
