LARRY GOTTHEIM is a key figure in the history and development of American avant-garde cinema through the 1970s and 1980s. From his late-1960s series of sublime ‘single-shot’ films to the dense sound/image constructs of the mid-1970s and after, his cinema is the cinema of presence, of observation, and of deep conscious engagement. While addressing genres of landscape, diary, and assemblage filmmaking, Gottheim’s work properly stands alone in its intensive investigations of the paradoxes between direct, sensual experience in collision with complex structures of repetition, anticipation, and memory. Gottheim founded the Department of Cinema at Binghamton University and taught there until 1998. In the 1990s Gottheim also served for a brief time as director of the Filmmaker’s Co-op in New York. Gottheim’s films are in the collections of museums and archives throughout the world, and a program of his restored early films premiered at the 2005 New York Film Festival.
