USA, 1980 (MIFF 1980, Programme 23)
Director: Michael Blackwood
The terminology and critical nomenclature that will label American Art of the 1970's is still being devised and debated. The implication is that, unlike the 1950s and 1960's, when a basic style and set of artistic values emerged, this most recent decade defies generalities. The film selects fourteen artists to examine this heterogeneous era.
