Symbiopsycho-taxiplasm: Take One

William Greaves

SaskTel Theatre

In conjunction with her exhibition, Source, artist Sara Cwynar has paired her recent cinematic trilogy with a selection of films. Each of her short works will be followed by a feature-length film that has helped shape her distinctive visual language while shedding light on the filmmaking process.​

In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid filmmaker William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York’s Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they’re making. A couple enacts a breakup scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies. ​

This film will be preceded with a screening of
