Bruce Baillie: Screening Room with Robert Gardner

Part of The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973

This program features a 1973 conversation with Bruce Baillie, one of the founders of the San Francisco avant-garde film movement. The segment was excerpted from the pioneering television series Screening Room, which focused on experimental film and aired from 1973 to 1980.

Explore Baillie’s lyrical films through clips from On Sundays (1960), The Gymnasts (1961), To Parsifal (1963), Tung (1966), and Castro Street (1966), which is included in the exhibition The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973.


The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973 is made possible by generous support from Elizabeth Redleaf. Major support to preserve and digitize the Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Study Collection is generously provided by the Bentson Foundation.
