Annie O Presents: Chris StillsREAD NEXT STORY
Entering The Gallery
"The documentary was actually filmed at the club in 1976. The breathtaking footage is nothing short of spectacular considering the visuals are real, not recreations or reenactments. Without cell phones or video cameras, the scarcity of 16mm film of this magnitude, directed by Jim Bidgood (Pink Narcissus), gives you a rare look at actual clothing, motions, dance moves, and environments of a time almost 50 years in the past."
Leaving The Gallery
"This clip was provided before synching the sound. Film was created with a camera (for video) and a tape deck (for audio), recording each modality separately and synching them later in the editing bay. This gives the filmmaker greater control over the elements, and the intrusion of sounds is off set. The clip shows people leaving the Gallery at 7:30am, and we see Houston Street at Mercer with Broadway in the background, showing the stark changes New York City has sustained over the years."
