Bruce Conner Presents Television Assassination & More

A Bruce Conner Birthday Celebration

Sundance Kabuki Cinemas

The Cinematheque proudly invites everyone to share this special evening celebrating the work of Bruce Conner, one of America’s master filmmakers and artists, including the premiere of Television Assassination(1995). A pivotal artist of the last four decades, Conner’s work ranges from assemblage, photography, and drawing to a body of films for which he was recognized with a Maya Deren Lifetime Achievement Award from the AFI in 1988. This November Conner not only has 2 one-person shows in New York but is also included in a major exhibition at the Whitney Museum, Beat Culture and the New America. Conner’s pioneering use of found footage has inspired countless filmmakers since A Movie was released in 1958, and tonight’s program includes that seminal work, Take The 5:10 To Dreamland, Report, America Is Waiting, The White Rose, Cosmic Ray, and Valse Triste.
