DESCRIPTION

“This was an adequate enough performance, as improvisations go. The only problem was that my entire educatio n, everything I had ever been told or had told myself, insisted that the production was never mean t to be improvised: I was supposed to have a script, and had mislaid it. I was supposed to hear cues, and no longer did. I was meant to know the plot, but all I knew was what I saw: flash pictures in variable sequence, images with no ‘meaning’ beyond their temporary arrangement, not a movie but a cutting room experience. In what would probably be the middle of my life I wanted still to believe in the narrative and in the narrative's intelligibility, but to know that one could change the sense with every cu t was to begin to perceive the experience as rather more electrical than ethical.”

Joan Didion, The White Album

Film program organized by Michael Chaiken and Victoria Keddie.
