Harpur Cinema Presents: Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

Willieam Greaves, USA, 1968, 75 min

Friday, Arpil 5, 2024, and Sunday, April 7, 2024: Lecture Hall 6, 7:30 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm. $4 Single Admission.


In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, the pioneering 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 breakup 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.
