These films from the East share an interest in time or a sense of place. Some landscapes are even metaphorical. CONEY a joyful vision of Coney Island, METROLINER collects history as it travels between New York and Washington, HOMAGE TO MAGRITTE plays with the spatial boundaries of images, YUDIE moves from the present to the past through an older women's life, THE CLUB is a fantasy that graphically examines the environment of a men's club in New York, EVIDENCE carries a sense of place from New York and delivers it to you in Los Angeles. I thought it would be interesting to present these films to you in that context, but they should be looked at as totally separate adn self-contained pieces. My own ideas merely provided a programming experiment, a chance for you in the West to see some of the things that we in the East are thinking about. [Source: Theatre Vanguard Program Notes, 1975]
