Location

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

A seminal, deeply American artist, Conner (1933–2008) was a master of irony and juxtaposition. Arguably the inventor of the found-footage film genre, Conner created films that are veritable X-rays of the 20th-century American mind, exposing and describing collective fantasies and fears while ultimately remaining deeply personal, intimate, and darkly elusive. This celebration of his work includes Cosmic Ray, Mongoloid, America Is Waiting, Ten Second Film, Vivian, Breakaway, Marilyn Times Five, Report, Looking for Mushrooms, and Crossroads.
