Beginning in the 1960s, filmmaker Saul Levine has created a body of work that is by turns lyrical, poetic, autobiographical, and political. He has worked primarily in Super-8mm, and his films constitute one of the most distinctive voices in American avant-garde film and capture the intimacy and delicacy of small-gauge filmmaking. Levine is best known for his gestural, improvisatory camerawork and for the sharp, incisive associations of his political films—two very different kinds of radical approaches. 

Presented in collaboration with "Radiant Visions: Media Art From SAIC, 1965 - Now," a month-long series of films and artist appearances celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
