“The Films of Holly Fisher” Retrospective at Anthology Film Archives November 7 – November 12

This long-overdue retrospective surveys the career of Holly Fisher, a filmmaker who since the late 1960s has been as prolific, as free in her exploration of different cinematic forms, and as adventurous in her embrace of new technological tools and ways of seeing as any of her peers, but without enjoying the degree of attention and acclaim that her work richly deserves. The programs includes BULLETS FOR BREAKFAST (1992), “one of the most obsessive films in recent memory, a precisely made flood of images, text, and MY DARLING CLEMENTINE cuts a swath across easy comprehension. Fisher constructs the film along the twin axes of visual sophistication and handmade aesthetics – it’s both beautifully meticulous and gorgeously frayed.” (Cameron Baily), as well as program notes by Jon Gartenberg from his earlier presentation of Fisher’s EVERYTHING AT ONCE (2010) at The 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.



“I’m interested in expanding the idea of narrative:  beginning, middle, and end makes no particular sense to me.  I don’t see the world that way.  I’m interested in the notion of cycle.”
