June 8, 2022 Update – This site has been moved from the original Wix host and is in the process of being updated. Many of the links and images, including music and video, are still to come.

Documentary

This page, which will be active soon and can be accessed in the upper right corner of this blog, will have much of the documentary work that I have done since the early 1990’s. This includes a number of artist documentaries, including about Grady Alexis, Thom Corn, the art and artists of El Taller Latino Americano, and especially Linus Coraggio. Linus also has his own page, which includes the five completed films I have made about him.

Birth of the Sun – Excerpt

Birth of the Sun is a 27 Minute Documentary about the East Village of the 1980s and the Haitian Artist Grady Alexis. The film is filled with unique artists and musicians who knew Grady in the 1980’s – Thom Corn, Bernardo and Demian Palombo, Turrizo, Hamlet Zurita, Lori Leistyna, and many others who were part of El Taller Community Center. It was shot by Emmanuel Alexandre Jr, and edited by Hyunjung Cho. Birth of the Sun recently screened as part of a 30th Year anniversary event marking the closing of the Chocolate Milk Art gallery in the East Village.
You can watch an excerpt from Birth of the Sun by clicking on the Youtube video above.

SRL-8818 – Short Trailer

This is a short trailer for the film SRL – 8818, a documentary about two performances 30 years apart by Mark Pauline and Survival Research Laboratory.  Shot and edited by Thomas W. Campbell

Linus Films

This is the page where the five completed films I have made about Linus can be viewed, free of charge. Linus has put his lifetime into this work and I have dedicated over ten years to these completed films, and a number of others still in development.

All I ask if you dear viewer and lover of bold original New York Downtown art is that you let me know of any interesting screening opportunities for these films and of any potential funding possibilities. Everything you see on this page, and this web site, has been self funded and hand made. There are bigger projects I would like to make with Linus but won’t be able to do so without talented collaborators and necessary funding.
