NOTFILM

Fri, Nov 18 / 7 pm
Sat & Sun, Nov 19 & 20 / 3 pm
Directed by Ross Lipman
2015, USA, 130 min

NOTFILM is a treasure hunt by filmmaker/restoration archivist Ross Lippman to uncover stories behind the making of a short avant garde film entitled FILM, the only collaboration between legendary playwright Samuel Beckett and silent comic genius Buster Keaton. The collaborative film they made along with director Alan Schneider, renegade publisher of Grove Press Barney Rosset, and Academy Award-winning cinematographer (On The Waterfront) Boris Kaufman, has been the subject of praise, condemnation, and controversy for decades. Lippman went on a seven-year-long global search and discovered both the outtakes of FILM including the long-lost prologue and the only prolonged recording ever of Beckett discussing the creation of his work.  These are the kind of finds that archivists and scholars wish for at least once in their lifetime.

Reviews

You had best put his movie NOTFILM on your must-see list. That is, if you have any reverence for Buster Keaton, Samuel Beckett, cinema history and the artistic and filmmaking processes.
– James van Maanen, TrustMovies.com
  NOTFILM is one of the most delightful, thoroughgoing and ingenious pieces of archival filmmaking to hit the screen in recent years.
