The Great Blondino (William T. Wiley & Robert Nelson, 1967)Compendium of games. Three films by Robert Nelson
Thursday May 3, 20h
Xcèntric CCCB, Montalegre, 5, 08001 Barcelona

Ntoce: This screening has been delayed until May 3rd.

This session presents three of the most important films by experimental filmmaker Robert Nelson, who died earlier this year, made in collaboration with friends and artists on the San Francisco scene. Bleu Shut could be called a structural film; Oh Dem Watermelons is an anarchic comedy reminiscent of surrealist avant-garde cinema, and The Great Blondino is a delirious, dreamlike narrative. But what all three share is an enthusiastic sense of humour and an energy that conveys how much fun they were to make. [Screening in 16 mm]

Programme: Bleu Shut, Robert Nelson, USA, 1970, 30‘; Oh Dem Watermelons, R. Nelson, USA, 1965, 11’; The Great Blondino, William T. Wiley & Robert Nelson, USA, 1967, 42’.
