- Series Description
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 Dartmouth Game; 17 1/2 minutes; Color. For God While Sleeping; 2 1/2 minutes; Color.
“The Dartmouth Game was originally made as a promotional film for the Admissions Department at Dartmouth College. It has never been used by the college and in an interview with filmmaker Wayne Wadhams we learn why.
“The film begins with a ‘To Tell The Truth’ routine asking the bogus panel and viewer to determine which man is the real president of Dartmouth College. The film packs an impressive amount of facts about Dartmouth - - in a most palatable and entertaining fashion. “
For God While Sleeping”...is from the Poetry On Film study program produced by the Visual Learning Corporation”. “Amy Greenfield of Cambridge chose to make a film based on Anne Sexton’s poem, For God While Sleeping. The film is narrated by the poet.”
