Still image from the film Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present
Tony Conrad (1940–2016) was an important filmmaker, sound artist, and educator, who began work in the 1960s. Mostly associated with the minimalist school, he was—in reality—a restless man who embraced chaos and the old Dada spirit of tearing everything down to make it new again. Conrad was also funny and playful and inspirational. Tyler Hubby’s documentary Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present is a film worthy of its subject. The feature documentary will be preceded by two of Conrad’s short films: Articulation of Boolean Algebra for Film Opticals (Finale) (1975, 10 min.) and Beholden to Victory (1980–83, 26 min.). (16mm/HD/2K DCP Presentation)
