Session 101: “Paul Sharits”
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Ian Wooldridge screened a series of films by and about Paul Sharits (1943-1993).
American avant-garde/experimental filmmaker, artist, and professor of media studies, Paul Sharits is widely known for his structural films, the use of multiple projectors, infinite film loops, experimental soundtracks, and interventions at the level of the filmstrip in order to realize his elemental mode of cinematic presentation. In the mid to late 60’s Sharits made a number of “flicker” films which were the focus of the evening.
1) Piece Mandala/End War, a film by Paul Sharits (1966).
2) Paul Sharits Television Interview with Paul O’Grady (1976).
3) T:O:U:C:H:I:N:G (1968).
