Description 1 online resource (13 minutes)
Summary INVERTED NARRATIVES is part of the retrospective UNSEEN CINEMA that explores long-forgotten American experimental cinema. Inspired by an amateur filmmaking competition, Barlow, Hay and Robbins collaborated on this reflexive film, in which they depict the production of a homemade short that references stylistic devices used by 1920s European and Russian avant-garde filmmakers such as Bunuel and Dali, Richter, Vertov and Eisenstein. --DAVID JAMES / BRUCE POSNER Roger Barlow and LeRoy Robbins were Works Progress Administration photographers, then struggling to find work in Hollywood. Barlow continued as an independent documentary filmmaker in New York. Robbins pursued a Hollywood career which was capped by his work on "Easy Rider" (1970). Harry Hay, an actor and screenwriter who aspired to an industry career, worked as an extra at Republic and Monogram. He was also a Communist organizer and soon an outspoken radical gay activist. The three met at the Hollywood screening space belonging to the Workers' Film and Photo League. -DAVID JAMES / BRUCE POSNER 16mm 1.37:1 black and white silent with music 11:51 minutes.
