In 1964, esteemed playwright Samuel Beckett set out on an embattled collaboration with silent-era genius Buster Keaton for his only work of cinema: a short, nearly silent, avant-garde movie only known as "Film." Working alongside director Alan Schneider, renegade publisher Barney Rosset, and Oscar®-winning cinematographer Boris Kaufman, this oddball team of all-star's work has become the subject of praise, condemnation, and controversy for decades. Yet the eclectic participants are just one part of a story that stretches to the very birth of cinema, and spreads out to our understanding of human consciousness itself. NOTFILM is the feature-length movie on the making of "Film" and its philosophical implications, utilizing additional outtakes, never-before-heard audio recordings and other rare archival elements to piece together this strange web of cinematic history.


DVD Extras Include:

BONUS FEATURES: Reconstruction of a lost scene from outtakes; Audio recordings of Beckett, Kaufman and Schneider; James Karen in conversation with Buster Keaton; Interview with James Knowlson on Samuel Beckett; Interview with Jean Schneider on Alan Schneider; Interview with Jeannette Seaver on Beckett and “Waiting for Godot”; Steve Schapiro and I.C. Rapoport in conversation on Beckett; Photo gallery; Downloadable MP3 recordings of music from NOTFILM by Mihály Víg
