The Films of Gregory J. Markopoulos

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012


A great figure of American independent cinema, Gregory J. Markopoulos (1928–1992) made some of the key films of the postwar avant-garde. Poetic, romantic and formally rigorous, his work was deeply rooted in mythological associations and the ritual dimensions of cinema. Despite Markopoulos’ huge influence as a filmmaker and polemicist in the new American Cinema of the 1960s, his films have been largely unavailable until now. The program this evening includes Bliss (1967, 7 min.) and Gammelion (1968, 54 min.), which are among the first films made by Markopoulos after he left the U.S. for Europe and represent a major step toward the epic form of his 80-hour magnum opus, Eniaios.Presented as part of the Jack H. Skirball Series

Co-presented with the Getty Center and L.A. Filmforum
