The Early Years Screening

When the formation of Canyon Cinema was announced, it was described as "a federation of willing devotees of the magic lantern muse"; Lawrence Jordan topped the charts with nineteen films in the collection. At its incorporation a few months later, Jordan was the new corporation's president, one of its four directors, and a cosigner of the bylaws. His films have been distributed by Canyon ever since. This program highlights works from 1961 to 1969 by artists involved with Canyon's exhibition or distribution programs in its early years. We open with two recent collage films by Jordan.
