Saul Levine is one of the leading figures in the autobiographical tradition within underground cinema. His films are often marked by a direct confrontation with the fragile material of 8mm, and the resulting works bear the marks of his construction, splices appearing like indentions in concrete. Through his films, Levine is a messenger of radical American politics, and of a distinctly anti-imperialist sensibility, a lineage following Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, and other American artists whose imagination and creativity was indivisible from their moral and political beliefs. This program provides a small glimpse of his massive oeuvre, focusing on the Notes, a series of films that he has made since the mid-1960s when he was the editor of New Left Notes, the newsletter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The Notes included in this program are bookended by Levine’s first film and one of his most recent, encompassing half a century of revolutionary filmmaking. (S. Broomer)
