Originally aired on May 22, 1968 as a four and a half hour marathon showcasing young filmmakers. Hosted by Standish Lawder, Yale University film professor, “Flick Out” gave viewers the chance to watch some of the most creative films being produced at that time. It included short documentaries, film essays, animated cartoons and full-length features that illuminated the art of film.
Beginning in July 1968, “Flickout” became a weekly half-hour series, produced by Henry Morgenthau, showing experimental films from both new, young filmmakers, and established craftsmen. Whenever possible Morgenthau interviews the filmmaker whose work is being shown. Series release date: 5/22/1968
- Program Description
Through unusual film footage of birds flying, planes crashing, flowers growing, and football players running, filmmaker Don Levy, creates a concrete idea of some of the ways time affects our lives. Time is a fickle friend that turns the new into old. Its a biological clock that slows down with age. It’s the measure of motion, an idea one lives with. The dialogue, written by British philosopher Stephen Toulman, deals with the concept of time as succinctly as does Levy. With the filmmaker’s visual images and philosopher’s words, you’ll begin to realize what Time Is to you.
