Paul Bartel: A New York Tribute in Film and Exhibition

On October 13-19, 2017, join filmmaker David Savage for a week-long career retrospective of independent film pioneer PAUL BARTEL (1938-2000) at Anthology Film Archives in New York City — the first such tribute to this beloved American director, actor and writer. From his intriguing early shorts to his work with Roger Corman in the 1970s,  to his last films as producer-director, we will shine the spotlight on this influential yet under-appreciated voice in the development of American film comedy.

PAUL BARTEL: A NEW YORK TRIBUTE will explore his taste for farce, black humor and satire reflected in such films as EATING RAOUL (1982), PRIVATE PARTS (1972), DEATH RACE 2000 (1975) and SCENES FROM THE CLASS STRUGGLE IN BEVERLY HILLS (1989). We will be screening most all of his films on 35mm and will gather cast members, family, friends and the author of a new biography of Paul Bartel, Stephen Armstrong (“Paul Bartel: The Life and Films ” 2016) to Anthology for post-screening discussions.

As a companion event, an organized gallery show of  drawings and photographs by Bartel’s close friend, the renowned illustrator BOB SCHULENBERG, will be shown at the Patrick Parrish Gallery in Tribeca, Oct. 12-19.
Entitled “Bob Schulenberg: The Secret Cinema Drawings” the exhibit will display Bob’s captivating drawings of the people involved in the making of THE SECRET CINEMA (1968), which Bob co-produced- as well as rarely seen portraits of Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, Paul Bartel and…..a very very young ingenue Barbra Streisand!
