Series Description

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

Two films by San Francisco filmmaker Ralph Arlyck. “Sean”, a study of a charming and articulate four-year-old who lives with his parents in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. And “Natural Habitat”, a roving free-form documentary on the over-commercialization of American society, and the people who are trapped by it.
