Really feeling Screening Room DVDs lately. Screening Room was a 70s Boston TV show devoted to experimental cinema, hosted by the amazing Robert Gardner. Filmmakers like Robert Breer, Yvonne Rainer, Hollis Frampton, and Jan Lenica (and sometimes philosophers like Stanley Cavell) would sit and chat with Gardner, free associating on art and film while drinking tea from cool ceramic mugs. One of my favorite episodes features surrealist animator Suzan Pitt, whose sexually frank "Asparagus" toured with David Cronenberg's "Eraserhead" for several years. To me her most fascinating work is "Jefferson Circus Songs," a far-out dream-piece filmed with the help of students at MCAD. Great music by Yale Marshall. I'm not sure who did the music for "Asparagus" but it's also pretty neat.
