Description
Professor of art history, photographer, and inventor Standish Lawder and distinguished philosopher Stanley Cavell visited Screening Room in January 1973. Here, Lawder demonstrates his home-made optical printer and screens his films as he, Gardner, and Cavell discuss the intellectual and psychological implications of his filmic manipulations.

In the late 1960s, Gardner was part of a group of Boston area businessmen and educators who took over Boston’s channel 5, an ABC affiliate, in order to offer the region a more educationally engaging alternative to standard television programming. After the takeover, Gardner initiated and hosted the long-running interview show, Screening Room, which presented films by independent filmmakers, contextualized by discussions with the filmmakers (and sometimes visiting scholars). The first Screening Room episode was an interview with John Whitney Sr., aired in November 1972; the series lasted until 1981. Around a hundred episodes were aired. Screening Room was dedicated to a reasonably wide range of independent cinema.((((; and Gardner’s selection of Screening Room programs for the original Documentary Educational Resources release reflected this: included were independent and experimental animators Rober Breer, George Griffin, Faith and John Hubley, Derek Lamb, Caroline Leaf and Mary Beams, Jan Lenica, Suzan Pitt; documentarians Les Blank, Emile de Antonio, Hillary Harris, Ricky Leacock, Alan Lomax, Richard P. Rogers, and Jean Rouch; and a range of avant-garde filmmakers: Bruce Baillie, Stan Brakhage, James Broughton, Ed Emshwiller, Hollis Frampton, Robert Fulton, Peter Hutton, Standish Lawder, Jonas Mekas, Yvonne Rainer, and Michael Snow.)))) Each Screening Room episode intercuts between the presentation of short films or excerpt from longer films and Gardner and the filmmaker(and sometimes other guests), sitting chairs around a coffee table, talking about the work.
