    One Step Away & Harry's Trip

    One Step Away
    Directed by Ed Pincus and David Neuman
    USA 1968, 16mm, b/w, 54 min
    It was the Summer of Love, 1967. The Haight-Ashbury section of San Francisco was to be the center of a vast cultural experiment. Ideologically it was an attempt at a post-industrial society, where people no longer needed to work and communities of choice allowed people to "do their own thing.” David Neuman and I set off to film what happened that summer. We decided to do what we thought would be a film about a rural commune, because that seemed to be the apotheosis of hippie ideals. What we found was a bizarre replication of bourgeois society — the sun rose on the nothing new. We decided to use an anecdotal editing style with an attempt to enforce a narrative line.

    Harry's Trip
    Directed by Ed Pincus and David Neuman
    USA 1969, 16mm, b/w, 16 min
    Harry, the leader of a commune, was in the middle of an acid trip when we put him in a room all by himself in front of the camera.
