Description from press release C. 9/1973: “Kitchen Sync is a collection of new films by independent New England filmmakers. Over 200 films were received and screened before choosing the twenty-four which make up this series of 13 one-half hour shows.
One of the primary motivations for doing this series was the recognition that the new, experimenting filmmaker has very little opportunity of exposure for his work. This is also the reason why we chose to concentrate on the work of filmmakers living in the New England are for this local series.
The films ‘collected’ for this series represent a great variety of style and subject: they include animation, documentary and dramatic narrative films. The filmmakers range in age from fourteen years (two students from Philips Academy at Andover who made the slapstick film, Stars And Stripes Forever) to mature individuals like Joan and Frank Gardner of New Haven, Connecticut who made The Fisherman’s Wife - - Joan is a painter and Frank a psycho-biologist.
Follwoing the presentation of many of the films are interviews with the filmmakers which, as a group, strikingly reveal the diversity of background and interest of these people. “ - Joan Sullivan, Producer, Kitchen Sync, C. 9/1973. Series release date: 1973

The War Comes Home; 24 minutes; Black and White.
The War Comes Home is a documentary film shot during in 1970 by filmmaker Bob Jones. “The film studies the emotional responses to the war through a two-term career officer, a young schoolteacher, and mother who is a Vietnam widow, tow Vietnam veterans and a bereaved couple whose only child was killed in the war. The filmmaker obviously has great skill as an interviewer as well as an editor: the interviews are deeply personal and involve the viewer in the emotional conflicts and sufferings. Added power is given the film by sparse but appropriate use of war footage intercut with the profiles of these people to whom the war came home with great impact.” Following the film is a brief interview with filmmaker Bob Jones.
