Films On Maui

The first of a series of underground film programs will be shown at 7:30 p.m. this Friday (May 7) at the Princess Theatre in Paia.

The series will be presented under the auspices of the Woods Eye Film Programs, a nationwide organization of underground film distributors represented on Maui by Jon Murray of Wailuku.

"These films are a means of getting people together," Jon said. "An enjoyable means of communication. I'd like to see students, locals and longhairs all getting together."

The first program, titled The Extremities of Everyday Experience, consists of ten independent and underground films.

The 90-minute program includes God is Dog Spelled Backwards by Dan McLaughlin. This three-minute film received national attentiion when it was shown on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

The Bride Stripped Bare is a tongue-in-cheek documentary of Chicago's Mayor Daley unveiling Picasso's controversial gift to the city.

Other films on this program cover such subjects as pregnancy, birth, children's play, and two opposite extremes of religious experience-a Zen monastery and the Ephesian Church.

Represented on the program will be filmmakers Robert Nelson, Fred Padula, Carl Linder and Stan Brakhage.

Murray majored in filmmaking at Los Angeles City College and spent two years producing his own movies for Reel Art Films.
