For the last fifty years, Thom Andersen and Morgan Fisher have been filmmakers and friends in Los Angeles. The Andersen & Fisher retrospective, presented by Yale Union, is the first of its kind, featuring a large selection of A&F films from 1965 to 2013. Over the course of three weekends we will watch as two creative forces build a insoluble relationship with film but a lasting friendship with each other. On March 30 and 31, Andersen and Fisher will be in house to discuss their working relationship.
Thom Andersen (born 1943, Chicago) is a filmmaker, critic, and teacher. He currently teaches film theory and history at the California Institute of the Arts. He made his first film in 1965 and his latest in 2012. His films were most recently shown in the 2012 Whitney Biennial.
