press release

Independent filmmakers such as Emile de Antonio, Beryl Fox, Jean-Luc Godard, and DA Pennebaker captured similarly raw, controversial footage, creating iconic documentaries whose antiwar statements of protest and civic unrest came to define the period. A section of the program is devoted to experimental films protesting the Vietnam War, including works by Paul Sharits, Stan Brakhage, and Carolee Schneemann. The series also includes Not in Our Name, in which artists such as Richard Serra, Lawrence Weiner, Martha Rosler, and Leon Golub are filmed by Brigitte Cornand on the eve of the war in Iraq, and Julie Talen's Sixty Cameras Against the War, in which footage independently shot by sixty protesters during the February 2003 New York march against the Iraq war is woven into a kaleidoscopic portrait of a protest fractured by barricades. The film series is presented by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT), Los Angeles. Pressetext
