About An Evening of Warren Sonbert Short Films

Year Released:

Warren Sonbert was one of the seminal figures working in American experimental film. Before he was 20 years old, his first career retrospective drew the attention of the film critic for Variety, who compared his work to Warhol’s Chelsea Girls. Provocative and playful, Sonbert’s loosely structured narratives boldly experiment with the relationship between filmmaker and protagonists. This program of short films examines Sonbert’s relationship to the gay universe and includes the films Amphetamine (1966), Noblesse Oblige (1981), and Whiplash (1997). (16mm and digital presentation)
