Overview

Preeminent film historian P. Adams Sitney—author of the foundational textbook Visionary Film and 2010 recipient of our Vision Award—has called Saul Levine “one of the most underrated filmmakers in the American avant-garde cinema.” Since the mid-1960s, Levine has been creating a body of work that is by turns lyrical, poetic, autobiographical and political. His eclectic oeuvre gives the viewer a vivid feeling for the turbulence of daily life in urban America over the past four decades; it has been shown throughout the world, from Ontario to Lima to Prague to, most recently, the Museum of Modern Art in New York (among other places).

Based in Boston, Levine is also an influential film professor at the Massachusetts College of Art, where he programs the long-standing, highly regarded MassArt Film Society.

It seems fitting that this year’s Vision Award recipient studied with its namesake in the early 1970s and considers Brakhage one of his greatest influences. At the time, both artists were working in 8mm and Super-8 gauges.

Saul Levine will be presented with the 2016 Stan Brakhage Vision Award by Phil Solomon at 7:00pm on Sunday, November 6, at the Sie FilmCenter. A reception in his honor follows in Henderson’s Lounge.
