Film Love: Plastic Haircuts and Good Times: A Tribute to Robert Nelson (1930-2012) 

When: Fri., Aug. 17, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: Free-$5
Robert Nelson's early film Plastic Haircut has a unique symmetrical structure. For the soundtrack, Nelson undermined his own pretensions by improvising bogus comments about the very film we are seeing, making perhaps cinema’s first-ever "director’s commentary track." The inclusion of an early audio tape-collage work by Steve Reich shows the collaborative cross-media spirit of Nelson’s works.
