IN BED WITH JAMES BROUGHTON

January 12, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Four of his groundbreaking Experimental films & Discussion with his Friends

Called by some the Father of West Coast Experimental Film, James Broughton (1913-1999) made 23 experimental films, and wrote 23 books of poetry.

Experience some of his films and discuss them with people who knew James.

Testament (1974 – 20 min) is a whimsical look at Broughton’s life. He thought it might be his last film, but then he met Joel Singer
The Water Circle (1975 – 3 min) is an example of his poem/films – an art form he pioneered
[we might also show his 1951 poem film Four in the Afternoon – 15 min]
The Bed (1968 – 20 min) was his most famous film. Made during the summer of love at Alan Watts’ Marin County compound, it explores all the things that can happen on a bed. Cast includes Watts, Imogene Cunningham, Gavin Arthur, Anna Halprin, and many hippies.
Devotions (1983 – 22 min), a collaboration with his husband Joel Singer, is a look at all the different ways men can love each other
