Brand X, starring Taylor Mead, is a scrappy, absurdist parody of a television show. Made in the early 1970s, it touched on the Vietnam War, sex, drugs, and technology. Filmmaker Wynn Chamberlain was a fixture in the 1960s New York pop art world and filmed his friends Frank Cavestani, Abbie Hoffman, Sam Shepard, and Sally Kirkland. Brand X has recently resurfaced after its mysterious disappearance more than 40 years ago, and the Hammer is proud to offer one its first “rescreenings.”
(1970, Dir. Wynn Chamberlain, color & b/w, 87 min.)
