As old friends, William S. Burroughs and Antony Balch began their film careers together in 1963 with the silent, surreal and very short film titled William Buys a Parrot. The films to come would be born from Burroughs’ unique writing techniques. The program includes Towers Open Fire (1963), The Cut-Ups (1967), William Buys a Parrot (1963), Bill and Tony (1972) and Ghosts at No. 9 (1982) and more! (16mm/Digital)
