General Event Information
7:00pm – 8:30pm
"David Holzman’s Diary" - Directed by Jim McBride, English, 74 min., 1967. As news from the Vietnam War and social unrest are heard over the radio, a young man retreats finds release in his comic-neurotic monologues to his 16mm camera, retreating further and further from the outside world as the film progresses. An “ingenious puzzle film” (Chicago Reader) and a “totally delightful satire” (NY Times), "David Holzman’s Diary" sends up our relationship to the cinema as a truth-telling medium in an age of political turmoil that still holds interest today.
