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

With Intent To Harm; 26 minutes; Color.
With Intent To Harm is a documentary made in 1971 about the prisons and jails in Massachusetts. Filmmakers Scott Segal and Stephen Ujlaki frankly admit that the film portrays their particular assessment and point of view of the system at that particular time. In an interview preceding the film, Steve Ujlaki states ‘what we basically wanted to show in the film was that there are a lot of incredible clichés that the public has about the convict...The film certainly does have a specific point of view, and I guess it’s because when myself and the crew were in prisons and jails talking to the men we came pretty much to share their point of view about their conditions and about what needs to be done...”
