Emile De Antonio

Series Site

"Intimate of Andy Warhol, John Cage, and the Weather Underground, few men lived though and chronicled the tumult of the 1960s and their aftermath as fully as Emile de Antonio: savage satirist, collagist, political polemicist, montage artist, and fiercely independent filmmaker. Beginning with 1963 debut Point of Order!, a brilliant distillation of 188 hours of the Army-McCarthy senate hearings, de Antonio tirelessly depicted the events of the day through a visionary, experimental lens, tackling the Warren Report (Rush to Judgment), the Vietnam War (In the Year of the Pig), and the Nixon debacle (Millhouse: A White Comedy). Essential now, essential always, and still thrillingly unreconciled."-Metrograph
