Bruce Conner Film Festival

By: Contributed Photo
‘Crossroads', by Bruce Conner, captures the fascination with the atomic bomb in all its destructive, horrifying and beautiful power.
LIVINGSTON MANOR - The Catskill Art Society will present five films by Bruce Conner this June and July at the Laundry King, a former storefront at 65 Main St, Livingston Manor. This series of found-footage films range from Conner's iconic first, A MOVIE, to later works of the 1960s and 1970s. Admission is complimentary and screenings will take place at 12, 3 and 6 p.m.
A protean artist who worked across a range of media, Conner is best known for his pioneering use of found footage to create his experimental films. The films, which touch on themes of rising consumer culture and the dread of nuclear apocalypse, challenge the viewer to reexamine media-saturated cultural narratives.
