Photos of the Remarkable 1929 Nameless Woman Disappearance
by Jack Smith & Piero Heliczer
Though the photographs look like they date from the early sixties (from those Sunday night sessions that led up to the making of Flaming Creatures,) this collaboration with Piero Heliczer (who had earlier contributed text to and published The Beautiful Book through his Dead Language Press) came a few years later.
“In celebration of his centennial, we’re pleased to present these special screenings of BIG JOY, the new documentary on the life and work of James Broughton. Broughton was a member of the Essential Cinema selection committee in the early 1970s alongside Ken Kelman, Peter Kubelka, P. Adams Sitney, and Jonas Mekas, a crucial participant in the formation of Anthology Film Archives.”
Here’s the (4) screenings info:
Friday at 8pm (Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan)
Saturday at 8pm, (Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan)
Sunday at 8pm (Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan)
So don’t miss the screenings of BIG JOY: The Adventures of James Broughton at Anthology Film Archives at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday with poetic performances and after parties; And an additional screening at the Spectacle Theater in Brooklyn.
