San Francisco-based artist Bruce Conner made his first short film, A MOVIE, in 1958 at the height of the national anxiety about the atomic threat. Over the following two decades, Conner's film-making practice was framed by the cultural and social fallout of the Cold War. Drawing on his papers at Bancroft, this talk will examine the films Conner produced during this period ? including masterful montages of "found footage," psychedelic voyages into expanded consciousness, and intimate portraits of friends and collaborators. It will also analyze major influences on his distinctive apocalyptic vision of postwar America.
