QUICK BILLY (THURSDAY 9 PM ONLY)
THURSDAY, MAY 10. 9PM. ONE SHOW ONLY. (1971 Bruce Baillie) Quick Billy is Canyon Cinema founder Bruce Baillie's mediation on the Tibetan Book of the Dead. A “4-reel western,” beginning with hypnotically beautiful shots of natural life seen through a homemade aquarium which moves into an imagistic recall of Baillie's personal past. The film ends with a western satire, sending up in wild style ideas of the transformation from life to death. An avant-garde American masterpiece. Restored version. 56 min. 16mm.
