Symbiopsycho-taxiplasm: Take One (1968) William Greaves | Cinema at the Museum

Back To Previous Page
  • In conjunction with her exhibition, Source, artist Sara Cwynar has paired her recent cinematic trilogy with a selection of films. Each of her short works will be followed by a feature-length film that has helped shape her distinctive visual language while shedding light on the filmmaking process.


    In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid filmmaker 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.


    This film will be preceded by a screening of Sara Cwynar, Soft Film 2016, 16 mm film transferred to video, 8 minutes.


    Free with admission or membership. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to guarantee your seat.


    The SaskTel Theatre is sanitized between events with an electrostatic sprayer, meant for spaces that are more difficult to disinfect using traditional cleaning techniques.
