Citizen, I’m Not Losing My Mind I’m Giving It Away (1982) This film follows a group of anonymous young people on an apparently random journey through a disjointed San Francisco cityscape. Along their travels they encounter a succession of madmen and eccentrics, portrayed by various West Coast performance artists, whose impassioned monologues and improvisations satirize the institutions of contemporary American society.
Featuring: Stoney Burke, Bob Carroll, Whoopi Goldberg (in her first screen appearance), Darryl Henriques, Murray Korngold, Pons Maar, John O’Keefe and Michael Peppe. Director William Farley, 16mm, color, 75 minutes.
Motion pictures became my principal medium for expression over 50 year ago. I did not see this work as my path to fame or fortune, but rather as a means to create stories which reflected the events and influences which shaped my politics and personal values.
One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Dickens wrote “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. My goal has been to tell stories outside the Corporate controlled media which contribute to the conversation about being alive in our times.
